          Judge won't bar public from refuge that was once a nuke site      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Judge won't bar public from refuge that was once a nuke siteA federal judge on Thursday rejected a request to bar the public from a Colorado wildlife refuge that was once part of a nuclear weapons plant. Environmentalists and community activists had asked the judge to issue a preliminary injunction that would prohibit opening Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge northwest of Denver while the courts hear their lawsuit claiming the government did not study public safety closely enough. U.S. District Judge Philip A. Brimmer said the activists had not shown that radioactive exposure at the site was bad enough to cause them irreparable harm, so they had not met the judicial standard for an injunction.

Priest arrested during anti-nuke protest to mark Hiroshima anniversary
NC Reporter
(Peter Feuerherd) Pope Francis inspired him to do it. Fr. James Murphy, a Wisconsin pastor, was arrested Aug. 6 for trespassing at the Offutt Air Force Base outside Omaha, Nebraska, as part of an anti-nuclear weapons protest timed to mark the 73rd anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing. He was released pending a further hearing. Murphy could face up to six months in prison. (...)

88 days remain until the November midterms

Today’s comic by Ruben Bolling is A Calvinesque and Hobbesian look at Russian collusion:

Cartoon by Ruben Bolling

Trump regime eager to open up hundreds of thousands of Calif. acres to fracking:

Ending a five-year moratorium, the Trump administration Wednesday took a first step toward opening 1.6 million acres of California public land to fracking and conventional oil drilling, triggering alarm bells among environmentalists.

The U.S. Bureau of Land Management said it’s considering new oil and natural gas leases on BLM-managed lands in Fresno, San Luis Obispo and six other San Joaquin Valley and Central Coast counties. Meanwhile, activists in San Luis Obispo are pushing a ballot measure this fall to ban fracking and new oil exploration in the county.

Rapist Brock Turner loses his ridiculous “outercourse” appeal. So he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Another $1.1 billion added to cost of Georgia nukes: Four Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactors were going to usher in a nuclear power renaissance we were told a decade ago. They were supposed to be cheaper, safer, and quicker to get up and running once their permits were approved. But, a year ago, the owners shut down the two nukes they were building South Carolina, with the project less than 40 percent complete. Owners South Carolina Electric & Gas and Santee Cooper estimated that the $11.5 billion they had originally said the pair of reactors would cost when completed had ballooned to $25 billion. And they would not be finished until 2021-22, more than three years after their originally slated completion date. Now, Southern Co. and its utility subsidiary Georgia Power, who are building the other two nukes in Georgia, have added another $1.1 billion to the cost of the pair after having taken over the project when Westinghouse went bankrupt. Total cost for that project is now set at $27 billion. Even though the reactors won’t switch on for years, ratepayers are already coughing up more than $100 a year to pay for this “construction work in progress.”

Report says American elders are declaring bankruptcy three times as much as they used to: The Consumer Bankruptcy Project released its “Graying of U.S. Bankruptcy: Fallout from Life in a Risk Society,” which puts the blame on the ravaged societal safety net and policy changes that have left large numbers of older Americans with inadequate retirement savings and huge medical expenses. More than a third told researchers their bankruptcies were caused at least in part because they supported family members attending college by co-signing loans they now can’t pay back. Marc Stern, a lawyer in Seattle, told reporters: d“I never saw parents with student loans 20 or 30 years ago. When you are living on $2,000 a month and that includes Social Security—and you have rent and savings are minuscule—it is extremely difficult to recover from something like that.”

This is the first of many Smokey posters.

Today is Smokey Bear’s 74th birthday: 

Today marks the 74th birthday of America’s wildfire prevention symbol: Smokey Bear. On Aug. 9, 1944, Smokey was officially created to be the face of what would become the longest running public service advertisement campaign in the United States. At the time, our country’s forestlands were facing an epidemic of raging wildfires caused by the carelessness of people. Ironically, these were often the same people who came to those natural areas to admire the wild beauty of the landscape, and the wildlife that lived there. The first Smokey Bear poster was released In October of 1944, and it featured a warm and friendly looking black bear urging people that “Care will prevent 9 out of 10 woods fires!”

Cherokee engineer finally gets some public recognition decades after her death: Mary Golda Ross, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and great-great-granddaughter of Chief John Ross who led the tribe during the forced removal of the “Trail of Tears” in the 1830s, is considered to be the first Native woman to work as an aerospace engineer. She is featured in the Google Doodle Thursday. Her niece told Oklahoma Today Magazine: “She was six feet tall but very quiet and unassuming. She did not demand anything. She just went in and did it in her very quiet way.” She first went to work after graduation for what is now called Lockheed Martin, not just as the first American Indian women aerospace engineer, but the only woman on the design team of cutting-edge aircraft and spacecraft. After retiring in 1983, she promoted organizations like the American Indian Science and Engineering Society. In 1992, the Society of Women Engineers set up a scholarship in Ross’s name, which supports women who want to become engineers.

   <p><i>Escape from Chernobyl</i> is a survival-horror game taking place in the Chernobyl power-plant complex. It features an initial story-driven part taking place inside the reactor buildings and then turns into an open-world survival with total freedom to explore in a seamless experience: from open spaces to the maze-like corridors of each building and the nuclear unit buildings. </p>
   <p>Scavenging for weapons and gear is just one part of the needed edge to overcome this tremendous challenge where radiation with anomalies and zombies are trying to kill you at every corner.</p>
   <p><i>Escape from Chernobyl</i> features revamped and improved controls and a wide range of melee and fire weapons used in a new combat system using natural physics and body parts based damage. With that and the new noise based stealth system, each fight will require careful planning and true skill.</p>
   <p>Atypical Games' skill in amazing graphics harnesses the Metal technology and shines in this dense and lively world with unprecedented detail, physically based rendering, dynamic shadows and HDR post processing.</p>

   <p><i>Escape from Chernobyl</i> is a survival-horror game taking place in the Chernobyl power-plant complex. It features an initial story-driven part taking place inside the reactor buildings and then turns into an open-world survival with total freedom to explore in a seamless experience: from open spaces to the maze-like corridors of each building and the nuclear unit buildings. </p>
   <p>Scavenging for weapons and gear is just one part of the needed edge to overcome this tremendous challenge where radiation with anomalies and zombies are trying to kill you at every corner.</p>
   <p><i>Escape from Chernobyl</i> features revamped and improved controls and a wide range of melee and fire weapons used in a new combat system using natural physics and body parts based damage.

          Comment on First major piece of NASA’s Space Launch System assembled by James Lunar Miner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The BFR has the financial genes of a 150 ton payload reusable LEO space bomber/fast response launcher system. SpaceX has been getting government money for Fast Response/Prompt Global Strike launch capabilities from almost since it began. Hundreds or thousands of BFR flights to haul endless amounts of energy weak and low Isp chemical rocket propellant up through the fragile Ozone Layer, and destroy some of it each time, while adding endless amounts of CO2 to our atmosphere in order to build colonies on Mars is not an environmentally, economically, and politically sustainable plan. High Isp propellants and other resources mined on the Moon and used though-out Cislunar Space would have far less negative environmental effects on the Home Planet. America's SLS launching various large and reusable space tugs and upper stages that have efficient solar electric or nuclear thermal space propulsion systems will offer cost effective high Isp transportation systems to help explore and mine the resources and high Isp propellants available on the Moon, asteroids, and Mars.

          Trump(ed) up deal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The announcement of president Trump last week expressing his willingness to hold a summit with Iran with ‘no preconditions’, after a chain of threatening exchanges between him and president Rouhani, for a new model of US-Iran Nuclear deal indicates yet another flip flop in US policies. It is unlikely to be taken seriously so easily, after witnessing US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) of 2015 with Iran (Commonly known as Iran Nuclear Deal) even at the cost of differing with its allies and strategic partners, who have critical trade relations with Iran.

Can any future US – Iran nuclear deal succeed?

The intent of JCPoA in 2015 in which the United States and allies agreed to reduce sanctions on Iran, was that it will give up the means to make nuclear weapons. This remains unchanged, when president Trump says that Iran cannot be allowed to go nuclear. The Republicans were not too happy with its clauses at that time and made it an election issue, which president Trump delivered by walking out of it. I do not think that the intent of US has changed even now. President Trump duly supported by Israel has managed to raise the temperatures by rhetoric, provocative speeches, renewed sanctions on Iran, and tried to curtail their oil exports, but it has not worked. US knows that it cannot up the ante beyond economic, diplomatic and information warfare domain, because further pressure is likely to push Iran towards nuclear bomb even faster than what US expects. While US may be ready for summit, it will have to struggle very hard to find a workable replacement deal to the existing deal, which can be devoid of risks of failure, with no change of intention expressed in JCPoA, 2015, and may eventually find that the previous deal was not too bad to meet their strategic interests.

Additional complexities, but compromise is possible

The situation is much more complex in this case because none of its allies, who were part of JCPoA, 2015, have walked out of it so far. This has also raised doubts over the reliability, credibility and stability of policies of US to continue with a signed commitment, which can have repercussions on complete denuclearisation of North Korea, which may think twice before complete verifiable, irreversible denuclearisation. The emergence of a pro-Iran lobby to include Russia, Turkey, Qatar and China to oppose anti-Iran lobby including USA, Israel, Saudi Arabia and some other neighbours, is another major change in international environment, which can speed up nuclear ambition of Iran, if pushed to wall. It is not easy to pressurise Iran which has great strategic significance due to its location as well as oil export, which concerns US allies, strategic partners and China. If Iran sustains sanctions and goes nuclear, it will encourage others like Saudi Arabia also to go nuclear creating further instability in the region.  An ill-defined meeting with Iran is not likely to yield much, in such an environment. I sincerely feel that compromises are possible; because of some of US allies are still honouring JCPoA, 2015, so far, and the inclination of president Trump to talk to Iran. In case US tries to strike a US centric deal with Iran in isolation, its acceptability by others may be doubtful. Having two concurrent deals (JCPoA, 2015 with EU and new arrangement with US) will cause utter confusion, and may not be to lead to any workable solution.

Impact on India: is CAATSA waiver on Iran possible after S-400?

As a strategic partner of India, US is aware that India has historic, cultural, and oil centric relations with Iran, which are deep rooted. Iran has jumped one notch up by becoming the second largest crude oil supplier to India and energy security is core interest for India. Connectivity with CAR and Chabahar port is another strategic compulsion of India.  US has understood the need of S-400 missiles for India, based on Indian threat perception, and have agreed to give a waiver on CAATSA for its purchase from Russia. A similar waiver/understanding with US on the critical strategic issues of India with Iran including energy security is a fair expectation/ possibility. 

I visualise that US sanctions on Iran may continue, but US may have to rethink about CAATSA, or modify it to suit fast changing strategic and economic global dynamics to make it more flexible.  On the issue of Iran and Russia, it cannot afford to put EU, China, Russia and other strategic partners on sanctions together, and expect to make ‘America Great’. A rigid CAATSA may lead ‘America First’ to ‘America Alone’ hence it needs modifications to suit changing geopolitical environment.

A foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement on state-run KCNA that North Korea was still willing to implement a broad agreement made at the landmark June 12 summit in Singapore between U.S.

          Γιατί η «συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» παραβιάζει και το Διεθνές Δίκαιο. (Β΄ Μέρος)       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
ΕΜΠΕΡΙΣΤΑΤΩΜΕΝΗ ΑΝΑΛΥΣΗ ΤΗΣ ΠΑΡΑΝΟΜΙΑΣ ΠΟΥ ΣΥΝΤΕΛΕΣΤΗΚΕ ΜΕ ΤΗΝ ΕΠΑΙΣΧΥΝΤΗ ΚΑΙ ΠΡΟΔΟΤΙΚΗ ΣΥΜΦΩΝΙΑ ΠΑΡΑΔΟΣΗΣ ΤΗΣ ΜΑΚΕΔΟΝΙΑΣ
Γράφει ο Γιώργος Ρωμανός
«Ο μόνος σίγουρα χαμένος αγώνας είναι αυτός που δεν δόθηκε ποτέ» Γ.Ρ.
Β΄ Μέρος
Οι παραβιάσεις της διεθνούς νομολογίας
Και σε αυτό το Β΄ Μέρος των δύο κειμένων μου για την παράνομη και άκυρη «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών», (ΣτΠρ.), τόσο βάσει των νόμων και του Συντάγματος της Ελλάδος όσο και βάσει της Σύμβασης της Βιέννης και της Διεθνούς νομολογίας, θα ξεκινήσω με ανάλογο πρόλογο, όπως στο Α΄ Μέρους:

Στις 7 Δεκεμβρίου 2018 θα συζητηθεί στην ολομέλεια του Δικαστηρίου του Συμβουλίου της Επικρατείας (ΣτΕ) η αίτηση των Παμμακεδονικών Ενώσεων περί: αναστολής της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών», (17/6/18,) και των συμπροσβαλλόμενων πράξεων, των επιστολών του Υπουργού Εξωτερικών προς ΕΕ και ΝΑΤΟ.
Έτσι, η 7/12/2018 είναι μια ημερομηνία ορόσημο για παράλληλη παράσταση και προσφυγή στο ΣτΕ οποιουδήποτε Μακεδονικού Δήμου-πόλεως, Μακεδονικού φορέα, συλλόγου ή και Μακεδόνα ως άτομο, που έχουν οποιοδήποτε! έννομο συμφέρον, (εθνικό ή και απλό εμπορικό) να προσφύγουν στο ΣτΕ παράλληλα με την προσφυγή των Παμμακεδονικών οργανώσεων κατά της δουλόφρονης και προδοτικής «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών».
Αυτό αποτελεί μια δεύτερη χρυσή ευκαιρία για κάθε Μακεδόνα πατριώτη ο οποίος με την κατάλληλη νομική και συνταγματολογική υποστήριξη μπορεί να ζητήσει τη δικαίωσή του στο δικαστήριο του ΣτΕ.
Τα στοιχεία έρευνας που παραθέτω εύχομαι να χρησιμεύσουν σε νομικούς και συνταγματολόγους, κυρίως λόγω λογικής επαγωγικής και αφηγηματολογικής πληρότητας, καθώς τα καταθέτω ως μη νομικός.
Μόνο κίνητρο μου το βαθύτατο αίσθημα αγωνιάς για την καταστροφή που απειλεί την ιδιαίτερη πατρίδα μου, την Μακεδονία, την γενέτειρά μου, διαιώνια ελληνική Θεσσαλονίκη, αλλά και την απειλούμενη, κυρίως από εσωτερικούς εχθρούς, χώρα μας με την εν προόδω σχεδιαζόμενη διάλυση της εθνικής και κρατικής της υπόστασης, ειδικά στη Βόρειο Ελλάδα.
Συνοπτικά σημειώνω τα εξής:
α. Στο Α΄ Μέρος απέδειξα ότι η «ΣτΠρ.» στηρίζεται σε πλαστά στοιχεία τα οποία είναι αποτέλεσμα διεθνών πιέσεων και εκβιασμών προς την Ελλάδα από συγκεκριμένα κέντρα του εξωτερικού τα οποία συνεργάζονται με δουλόφρονους ελληνώνυμους πολιτικούς της χώρας μας.
Έτσι, και βάσει του διεθνούς δικαίου κάθε συμφωνία που βασίζεται σε πλαστά στοιχεία είναι παράνομη. Και πλαστά είναι τα περί δήθεν «Μακεδονικής» εθνότητας των Σλαβοαλβανών, και ομοίως της δήθεν «Σλαβομακεδονικής γλώσσας», του πολιτισμού, και της συνείδησής τους η οποία δεν αλλάζει παρά την κλοπή αντίστοιχων ελληνικών πολιτιστικών στοιχείων.
β. Η «ΣτΠρ.» ως κυβερνητική πράξη μπορεί να είναι μεν απρόσβλητη, αλλά στην πρόσφατη πρώτη αρνητική απόφαση του ΣτΕ συνάγεται, σημείο 7, ότι μπορούν να προσβληθούν από το ΣτΕ τα αποτελέσματα που οδηγούν στην αναστολή Συνταγματικών δικαιωμάτων των Ελλήνων, και όχι μόνο…
γ. Εκκρεμή απόφαση (90 ημέρες από την κατάθεσή της) για άλλη πρόσφατη προσφυγή εναντίον του Υπουργείου Πολιτισμού της χώρας μας, σχετική με την παραβίαση (κλοπή) πνευματικών δικαιωμάτων των Ελλήνων από τους Σλαβοαλβανούς Σκοπιανούς.
Τα δικαιώματα αυτά αφορούν την ελληνική γλώσσα η οποία διαστρέφεται ως δήθεν «Ελληνική Μακεδονική» και «Σκοπιανή Μακεδονική», τα τραγούδια, τις τελετουργίες, και κάθε άλλο ελληνικό πολιτιστικό αντικείμενο.
Συνακόλουθα και επ’ αυτού μεθοδεύεται, όπως και στην «ΣτΠρ.», η ουσιαστική παράκαμψη του πρόεδρου της ελληνικής Δημοκρατίας, βλ. Άρθρο 35 του Συντάγματος, ή ο εκβιασμός του να υπογράψει μια παράνομη δήθεν «Συμφωνία».
δ. Το Σκοπιανό Συνταγματικό Δικαστήριο έχει ήδη δημιουργήσει σχετικό δεδικασμένο απόρριψης, λόγω παράκαμψης του Σκοπιανού προέδρου, για προηγούμενη συμφωνία τους επί ενός αγωγού.
ε. Κατά τις μυστικές (!) και δόλιες δήθεν «συνομιλίες» πριν από την υπογραφή της «ΣτΠρ.» κρύφτηκε και παράνομα δεν λήφθηκε υπόψη από τους ελληνώνυμους «διαπραγματευτές μας» η απόφαση 1448/2009 του Αρείου Πάγου σύμφωνα με την οποία: Ο όρος Μακεδονία είναι ιστορικός, γεωγραφικός και όχι εθνοτικός.
Που θα πει, ότι ο Μακεδόνας είναι Έλληνας, όπως είναι και ο Θρακιώτης, ο Θεσσαλός, ο Αθηναίος, ο Κρητικός, κ.ο.κ. Και έτσι δεν μπορεί ένα μωσαϊκό μεταναστών και εθνοτήτων να αποκτήσει εθνοτική ταυτότητα, γλώσσα και κράτος δια της κλοπής, όταν μάλιστα μετανάστευσε μόλις τον 7ο αι. στα χώματα της Παιονίας (κυρίως) και της Δαρδανίας, δηλαδή εκτός της αρχαίας και της νεώτερης Μακεδονίας η οποία ήταν και είναι μόνο Ελλάδα. Έτσι, όμως, δημιουργείται μία πλαστή εθνότητα και αυτό είναι διεθνές στοιχείο ακυρότητας.
1. Οι παραβιάσεις της «Σύμβασης της Βιέννης», (1969 – 1980)
1.1. Κατά το άρθρο 18 της Συνθήκης της Βιέννης (Ν.Δ. 402/1974 «Περί κυρώσεως της από 23 Μαΐου 1969 Συμβάσεως της Βιέννης περί του Δικαίου των Συνθηκών και του προσηρτημένου αυτή παραρτήματος, ΦΕΚ Α΄ 141) από τη στιγμή που υπεγράφη τα όργανα της Ελληνικής Πολιτείας οφείλουν να απέχουν από ενέργειες οι οποίες αντιβαίνουν στο περιεχόμενο της εν λόγω Συνθήκης.
Αλλά αυτό ισχύει και για την FYROM. Κι όμως από την ημέρα υπογραφής, 17/6/18, της λεγόμενης «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών» ο πρωθυπουργός της κ. Ζόραν Ζάεφ αναφέρεται συνεχώς στην χώρα του αποκλειστικά με την λέξη «Μακεδονία», σε «Μακεδονικό Στρατό», σε «Μακεδονική γλώσσα», «Μακεδονική εθνότητα», κ.λπ. χωρίς το υποχρεωτικό επίθετο «Βόρεια», «Βόρειος», κ.ο.κ.
Και αυτό σημαίνει άμεση διεκδίκηση και ενσωμάτωση της μοναδικής Μακεδονίας των Ελλήνων ως περιοχή της Βορείου Ελλάδος η οποία φέρει και το μοναδικό αρχαιοελληνικό όνομα.
1.2. Η λεγόμενη «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» υπο το πρίσμα της «Σύμβασης της Βιέννης», αλλά και άλλων άρθρων του Διεθνούς Δικαίου αποδεικνύεται άκυρη και παράνομη, τουλάχιστον, για τους παρακάτω τέσσερις γενικούς κανόνες:
1,2, α. Στη «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών», δεν αναγράφεται ξεκάθαρα και πλήρως το καθεστώς ακυρότητάς της (ο διεθνής όρος Status quo ante, -επαναφορά στο προηγούμενο καθεστώς) με την ρητή αναφορά ότι το εν λόγω κράτος θα συνεχίσει να ονομάζεται FYROM, με ό,τι αυτό σημαίνει διεθνώς, εάν η «Συμφωνία» αποτύχει. Κυρίως δεν αναφέρεται ποιος είναι ο θεματοφύλακας, με απλά λόγια ο χειριστής της ανάκλησης αυτής της «Συμφωνίας».
Αν δεν υφίσταται ρητώς η ορθή ευχέρεια καταγγελίας της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών», βάσει της ΣτΒ τότε η μη δυνατότητα καταγγελίας συνιστά πράξη αθέμιτο, και τούτο διότι θεωρητικά δεν βασίζεται σε μονομερή βούληση, αλλά στη συμβατική άδεια εκ της σχετικής ελλείψεως την οποία εμπεριέχει η «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» από τη σύναψή της.
Σημειώνεται, ότι στη «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών», στα Άρθρο 19, περί: Επίλυσης Διαφορών, στα 1,2,3, και στο Άρθρο 20 προβλέπεται μόνο η γενικόλογη δυνατότητα προσφυγής στον ΟΗΕ προς επίλυση, βλέπε Άρθρο 20 της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών», με ασαφέστατη την περαιτέρω πορεία, τύχη και μέλλον της εν λόγω «Συμφωνίας». Πόσο μάλλον όταν αυτή η δόλια και προδοτική «Συμφωνία» προβλέπει επί ορισμένων θεμάτων «ορίμανση 5 ετών».
1,2, β. Στην ίδια, ΣτΒ, βλέπε τα περί: «Απάτης, Άρθρο 49, σελ.19-23. «Οσάκις το κράτος ήχθη εις συνομολόγησιν συνθήκης συνεπεία δολίας συμπεριφοράς ετέρου κράτους (δηλαδή, των Σκοπίων, με πλαστά στοιχεία περί εθνότητας, γλώσσας, πολιτισμού) έχοντος συμμετάσχει εις τας διαπραγματεύσεις, τούτο δύναται να επικαλεσθή την απάτην ως ακυρούσαν την δοθείσαν συναίνεσιν του όπως δεσμευθή διά της συνθήκης.» Στο Άρθρον 50 «Δωροδοκία- αντιπροσώπου κράτους.» Θέμα δωροδοκίας έθεσε η ίδια η κυβέρνηση ΣΥΡΙΖΑ εναντίον της Ρωσικής Δημοκρατίας.
1,2,γ. Στην ίδια, Άρθρο 53: «Συνθήκες που συγκρούονται με αναγκαστικό κανόνα του γενικού Διεθνούς Δικαίου» Και:
1,2, δ. Κανόνες συνυφασμένοι με την ΣτΒ, γνωστοί ως κανόνες: ius cogens γενικά
1.3. Είναι υποχρεωτικά, σύμφωνα με την «Σύμβαση της Βιέννης», τα εξής: «…η επικύρωση και όχι η υπογραφή είναι εκείνη που παρέχει στη «Συνθήκη των Πρεσπών» την οριστική της ισχύ.
Αλλά, ως πράξη για να χαρακτηρισθεί «οριστική και αμετάκλητος», σύμφωνα με τη ΣτΒ, θα πρέπει να καλύπτεται «ολόκληρο το κείμενο της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών» και «να μην υπάρχει καμία επιφύλαξη. (ΣτΒ).»
Αλλά, αυτό στην πράξη είναι αδύνατον, γιατί στη «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» και στο Άρθρο 1, 10α, προβλέπονται εκκρεμότητες προσαρμογής και ολοκλήρωσής διαφόρων διεργασιών επονομαζόμενων ως: «τεχνική μεταβατική περίοδος» διαρκείας 5 ετών.
Ενώ, από την άλλη, η εν λόγω «Συμφωνία» παράγει τελεσίδικα και μη αντιστρεπτά αποτελέσματα για την Ελλάδα με την έναρξη της ενταξιακής διαδικασίας στο ΝΑΤΟ και τις ενταξιακές διαπραγματεύσεις με την ΕΕ.
Κι αυτό έχει άμεση σχέση με το: «καθεστώς ακυρότητας βάσει της Σύμβασης της Βιέννης (άρθρα 42-45), καθώς παράγει μονομερώς βλαπτικά για την Ελλάδα αποτελέσματα.
1.4. Κάθε Διεθνής Συνθήκη είναι νομικό κείμενο που εκφράζει τη συμφωνία δύο ή περισσότερων υποκειμένων του διεθνούς δικαίου με δυνατότητα να δημιουργηθούν, μεταβληθούν ή να αρθούν δικαιώματα και υποχρεώσεις στο πεδίο του Διεθνούς Δικαίου, τα οποία θα διέπονται από αυτό. Βλ. Άρθρο 2 παρ. 1 πρ. 1 Σύμβαση της Βιέννης.
Από αυτό εξάγεται, ότι τα δικαιώματα αυτά ισχύουν κατά μείζονα λόγο όταν σε Διεθνείς Συνθήκες εμπεριέχονται σημεία και νοήματα με ασάφεια ή παραπλανητική διατύπωση πράγμα το οποίο ισχύει σε πολλά σημεία της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών».
2. Στη «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» παραβιάζονται Γενικές Αρχές και κανόνες του Διεθνούς Δικαίου
Μερικοί από αυτούς είναι και οι ακόλουθοι επτά διεθνείς ερμηνευτικοί κανόνες οι οποίοι ισχύουν για όλες τις Συμφωνίες παγκοσμίως και τους οποίους επιτάσσει η διεθνής νομολογία Ήτοι:
2.1. Την αρχή της καλής πίστης, που οδηγεί στην αναζήτηση της πραγματικής πρόθεσης των συμβαλλομένων, βάσει του κειμένου ή άλλων στοιχείων.
2.2. Την αρχή της καθόλου έρευνας του κειμένου και όχι τμηματικά αυτού.
2.3. Την αρχή όπου σαφείς διατάξεις δεν χρήζουν ερμηνειών.
2.4. Την αναζήτηση της σκοπιμότητας.
2,5. Την ερμηνεία εκ της συμπεριφοράς των συμβαλλομένων στη πράξη!
2.6. Την προσφυγή σε προπαρασκευαστικές εργασίες, εφόσον το κείμενο παρουσιάζει ασάφειες.
2.7. Η κατά κανόνα προβλεπόμενη καταγγελία συνθήκης αφορά πρωτίστως τις διμερείς συνθήκες.
Η καταγγελία συνθήκης εκ μέρους μιας των συμβαλλομένων Χωρών αποτελεί πάντα μονομερή πράξη. Δι’ αυτής ένα συμβαλλόμενο Κράτος ανακοινώνει τη πρόθεσή του, με ρητή κοινοποίηση, ότι παύει να δεσμεύεται από τη συγκεκριμένη Συνθήκη, οποτεδήποτε αυτό κρίνει!
3. Η Διεθνής αρχή: pacta sunt servanda ΑΠΑΓΟΡΕΥΕΙ στα κράτη, και γενικά στα υποκείμενα του Διεθνούς Δικαίου να δεσμευθούν από «ελαττωματικές διεθνείς υποχρεώσεις, είτε το ελάττωμά τους οφείλεται στη διαδικασία σύναψης της συνθήκης, είτε στο περιεχόμενό της.»
4. Βασική αρχή στην οποία βασίζεται το καθεστώς της ακυρότητας και γενική αρχή του διεθνούς δικαίου είναι η αρχή της καλής πίστης, όπως ήδη προαναφέρθηκε. Το Διεθνές Δικαστήριο της Χάγης στην απόφαση του Nuclear Tests δέχθηκε ότι αυτή αποτελεί κεντρικό σημείο του διεθνούς δικαίου.

5. Η «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» οφείλει και υποχρεούται να ακολουθεί τις αποφάσεις του Διεθνούς Δικαστηρίου της Χάγης, και σχετικές Συμφωνίες της Ουνέσκο, πράγμα που δεν συμβαίνει.
Η παράθεση ανάλογων δεδικασμένων εναντίον της «ΣτΠρ.» ξεπερνά κατά πολύ την έκταση του παρόντος κειμένου και πρέπει να αναπτυχθούν από τους καθ’ ύλην αρμόδιους.
6. Στην εν λόγω «Συμφωνία των Πρεσπών» παράγονται σοβαρές δουλείες σε βάρος της Ελλάδος, μερικές των οποίων εξετέθησαν και στο Α΄ Μέρος αυτών των κειμένων.
6. 1. Τόσο στο Άρθρο 13, βάσει του οποίου παραδίδονται τα ελληνικά λιμάνια και η οψέποτε κηρυχθείσα ελληνική ΑΟΖ, όσο και γιατί στο Άρθρο 14, 4 η Ελλάς αναλαμβάνει την υποχρέωση: «να αναπτύξει και να ενισχύσει τη συνεργασία της με τα Σκόπια όσον αφορά στην ενέργεια, ιδίως δια της κατασκευής, συντήρησης και χρήσης διασυνδεόμενων αγωγών φυσικού αερίου και πετρελαίου (υφιστάμενων, υπό κατασκευή και σχεδιαζόμενων)!»
Αυτό σημαίνει πως η υπερχρεωμένη για τον επόμενο αιώνα Ελλάδα θα είναι υποχρεωμένη να κατασκευάζει και να συντηρεί αγωγούς ενέργειας «υφισταμένους και σχεδιαζόμενους» τους οποίους θα τους προωθεί στην FYROM και θα τους διαμοιράζεται με αυτήν επί ίσους όροις.
Έτσι, πέραν της πρόσθετης οικονομικής δουλείας που επιτάσσει το άρθρο αυτό, καθίσταται εύλογο το ερώτημα: πώς είναι δυνατόν να δεσμευτεί η Ελλάδα από τώρα για κάτι που θα σχεδιαστεί στο μέλλον; Και βάσει των αναγκών ποίου κράτους;
Ωστόσο, ο καταναγκασμός σε βάρος της Ελλάδος συνεχίζεται, στο ίδιο Άρθρο, 14, 4, όπου υπάρχει πρόβλεψη-εντολή η οποία επί λέξη: «αφορά στις ανανεώσιμες πηγές ενέργειας, περιλαμβανομένων των φωτοβολταϊκών, της αιολικής και της υδρο-ηλεκτρικής ενέργειας.
Πιθανά εκκρεμή ζητήματα θα αντιμετωπισθούν χωρίς καθυστέρηση, με τη σύναψη αμοιβαίως επωφελών διακανονισμών λαμβάνοντας σοβαρά υπ’ όψιν την Ευρωπαϊκή Ενεργειακή Πολιτική και το ευρωπαϊκό κεκτημένο.
Το Πρώτο Μέρος (η Ελλάς) θα διευκολύνει το Δεύτερο (εννοεί την FYROM χωρίς να την αναφέρει με το όνομα αυτό) με κατάλληλη μεταφορά τεχνογνωσίας και εμπειρίας.».
Κι αυτό, όπως ρητώς αναφέρεται στο εν λόγω Άρθρο μέχρι του επιπέδου της μεταφοράς ελληνικής νανοτεχνολογίας από την Ελλάδα προς την FYROM.
Έτσι, όμως, με όσα περιλαμβάνει αυτή η «Συμφωνία» δίνεται η δυνατότητα στο κράτος της FYROM, αν κρίνει ότι η Ελλάδα στο μέλλον δεν του μετέφερε την κατάλληλή «τεχνογνωσία και εμπειρία» να προσφύγει σε διεθνή δικαστήρια ή fora και να καταδικαστεί η Ελλάδα ή να εξαναγκαστεί σε ρήτρες τις οποίες θα πρέπει να καταβάλλει στην FYROM.
Τα σημεία τα οποία παράγουν δουλείες με την μορφή μονομερών εκχωρήσεων δικαιωμάτων και τεχνογνωσία υψηλότατου επιπέδου της Ελλάδος προς την FYROM είναι πολλά.
Έτσι, οι δουλείες που προαναφέρθηκαν για την Ελλάδα είναι: επαχθείς και μονομερείς προς την FYROM, σε βαθμό τέτοιο ώστε εκτός από την παράδοση της Μακεδονίας, (όνομα, εθνότητα, γλώσσα) η Ελλάδα να εξαναγκάζεται να συμπεριφερθεί σαν να είχε νικηθεί σε πόλεμο από την FYROM.
Εν κατακλείδι:
Τα όσα εξετέθησαν αποτελούν μια σύντομη προσέγγιση των διεθνών παρανομιών και της ουσιαστικής ακυρότητας της «Συμφωνίας των Πρεσπών».
Η μεγίστη σοβαρότητα του ζητήματος απαιτεί όλα όσα προανέφερα να αναπτυχθούν με την κατάλληλη νομική και συνταγματική τεκμηρίωση, ώστε η δουλόφρονα «ΣτΠρ.», να ακυρωθεί τόσο σε ανώτατο επίπεδο εντός της Ελλάδος όσο και με προσβολή της σε όλα τα Διεθνή αρμόδια δικαστικά και μη όργανα.
Ως Έλληνες, ερήμην της δουλόφρονης κρατικής ολιγαρχίας και τυραννίας που μας κυβερνά, καταπατώντας μεταξύ πολλών άλλων και το νόμιμο δικαίωμά μας για δημοψήφισμα, στο μέγιστό θέμα Μακεδονίας, οφείλουμε και πρέπει να καταγγείλουμε την «ΣτΠρ.», εκτός από το ΣτΕ και στα διεθνή δικαστήρια.
Όπως το Ευρωπαϊκό Δικαστήριο Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων, για μη εφαρμογή της Ευρωπαϊκής Σύμβασης για τα Δικαιώματα του Ανθρώπου, λόγω της κλοπής κ

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, A NEW COHORT OF PROGRESSIVES IS RUNNING FOR—AND WINNING—ELECTIONS. The stunning victory of democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the Democratic congressional primary in New York is perhaps the most well-known, but she is far from alone. Most of these candidates are young, more than usual are people of color, many are women, several are Muslims, at least one is a refugee, at least one is transgender—and all are unabashedly left. Most come to electoral politics after years of activism around issues like immigration, climate and racism. They come out of a wide range of social movements and support policy demands that reflect the principles of those movements: labor rights, immigrant and refugee rights, women’s and gender rights, equal access to housing and education, environmental justice, and opposition to police violence and racial profiling. Some, though certainly not all, identify not just with the policies of socialism but with the fundamental core values and indeed the name itself, usually in the form of democratic socialism.

Rashida Tlaib, a Palestinian-American woman in Detroit, just won the Democratic primary for the legendary Congressman John Conyers’ seat. Four women, two of them members of Democratic Socialists of America and all four endorsed by DSA, beat their male incumbent opponents in Pennsylvania state house primaries. Tahirah Amatul-Wadud is running an insurgent campaign for Congress against a longstanding incumbent in western Massachusetts, keeping her focus on Medicare-for-All and civil rights. Minnesota State Rep. Ilhan Omar, a former Somali refugee, won endorsement from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, and is running for Keith Ellison’s former congressional seat as an “intersectional feminist.” And there are more.

Many highlight their movement experience in their campaigns; they are champions of immigrant rights, healthcare, student debt organizing and the fight for $15. Intersectionality has grown stronger, as the extremism of Trump’s right-wing racist assault creates significant new gains in linking separate movements focused on racism, women’s rights, immigrant rights, climate, poverty, labor rights and more.

But mostly, we’re not seeing progressive and socialist candidates clearly link domestic issues with efforts to challenge war, militarism and the war economy. There are a few exceptions: Congressional candidate and Hawaii State Rep. Kaniela Ing speaks powerfully about U.S. colonialism in Hawaii, and Virginia State Rep. Lee J. Carter has spoken strongly against U.S. bombing of Syria, linking current attacks with the legacy of U.S. military interventions. There may be more. But those are exceptions; most of the new left candidates focus on crucial issues of justice at home.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war.

It’s not that progressive leaders don’t care about international issues, or that our movements are divided. Despite too many common assumptions, it is not political suicide for candidates or elected officials to stake out progressive anti-war, anti-militarism positions. Quite the contrary: Those positions actually have broad support within both our movements and public opinion. It’s just that it’s hard to figure out the strategies that work to connect internationally focused issues, anti-war efforts, or challenges to militarism, with the wide array of activists working on locally grounded issues. Some of those strategies seem like they should be easy—like talking about slashing the 53 cents of every discretionary federal dollar that now goes to the military as the easiest source to fund Medicare-for-all or free college education. It should be easy, but somehow it’s not: Too often, foreign policy feels remote from the urgency of domestic issues facing such crises. When our movements do figure out those strategies, candidates can easily follow suit.

Candidates coming out of our movements into elected office will need clear positions on foreign policy. Here are several core principles that should shape those positions.

A progressive foreign policy must reject U.S. military and economic domination and instead be grounded in global cooperation, human rights, respect for international law and privileging diplomacy over war. That does not mean isolationism, but instead a strategy of diplomatic engagement rather than—not as political cover for—destructive U.S. military interventions that have so often defined the U.S. role in the world.

Looking at the political pretexts for what the U.S. empire is doing around the world today, a principled foreign policy might start by recognizing that there is no military solution to terrorism and that the global war on terror must be ended.

More broadly, the militarization of foreign policy must be reversed and diplomacy must replace military action in every venue, with professional diplomats rather than the White House’s political appointees in charge. Aspiring and elected progressive and socialist office-holders should keep in mind the distinction between the successes and failures of Obama’s foreign policy. The victories were all diplomatic: moving towards normalization with Cuba, the Paris climate accord and especially the Iran nuclear deal. Obama’s greatest failures—in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen—all occurred because the administration chose military action over robust diplomacy.

Certainly, diplomacy has been a tool in the arsenal of empires, including the United States. But when we are talking about official policies governing relations between countries, diplomacy—meaning talking, negotiating and engaging across a table—is always, always better than engaging across a battlefield.

A principled foreign policy must recognize how the war economy has distorted our society at home—and commit to reverse it. The $717 billion of the military budget is desperately needed for jobs, healthcare and education here at home—and for a diplomatic surge and humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to people of countries devastated by U.S. wars and sanctions.

A principled foreign policy must acknowledge how U.S. actions—military, economic and climate-related—have been a driving force in displacing people around the world. We therefore have an enormous moral as well as legal obligation to take the lead in providing humanitarian support and refuge for those displaced—so immigration and refugee rights are central to foreign policy.

For too long the power of the U.S. empire has dominated international relations, led to the privileging of war over diplomacy on a global scale, and created a vast—and invasive—network of 800-plus military bases around the world.

Now, overall U.S. global domination is actually shrinking, and not only because of Trump’s actions. China’s economy is rapidly catching up, and its economic clout in Africa and elsewhere eclipses that of the United States. It’s a measure of the United States’ waning power that Europe, Russia and China are resisting U.S. efforts to impose new global sanctions on Iran. But the United States is still the world’s strongest military and economic power: Its military spending vastly surpasses that of the eight next strongest countries, it is sponsoring a dangerous anti-Iran alliance between Israel and the wealthy Gulf Arab states, it remains central to NATO decision-making, and powerful forces in Washington threaten new wars in North Korea and Iran. The United States remains dangerous.

Progressives in Congress have to navigate the tricky task of rejecting American exceptionalism. That means recognizing that it is often a good thing when U.S. global military and economic efforts fail, because they are generally aimed at maintaining domination and control. Without that U.S. domination, the possibility arises of a new kind of internationalism: to prevent and solve crises that arise from current and potential wars, to promote nuclear disarmament, to come up with climate solutions and to protect refugees.

That effort is increasingly important because of the rapid rise of right-wing xenophobic authoritarians seeking and winning power. Trump is now leading and enabling an informal global grouping of such leaders, from Egypt’s Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to Victor Orban in Hungary and others. Progressive elected officials in the United States can pose an important challenge to that authoritarian axis by building ties with their like-minded counterparts in parliaments and governments—possibilities include Jeremy Corbyn in the United Kingdom and Andrés Manuel López Obrador in Mexico, among others. And progressive and leftist members of Congress will need to be able to work together with social movements to build public pressure for diplomatic initiatives not grounded in the interests of U.S. empire.

In addition to these broad principles, candidates and elected officials need critical analyses of current U.S. engagement around the world, as well as nuanced prescriptions for how to de-escalate militarily, and ramp up a new commitment to serious diplomacy.

GEOPOLITICAL POWER PLAYS

RUSSIA: Relations with Russia will be a major challenge for the foreseeable future. With 90 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons in U.S. and Russian hands, and the two powers deploying military forces on opposite sides of active battlefronts in Syria, it is crucial that relations remain open—not least to derail potential escalations and ensure the ability to stand down from any accidental clash.

Progressives and leftists in Congress will need to promote a nuanced, careful approach to Russia policy. And they will face a daunting environment in which to do so. They will have to deal with loud cries from right-wing war-mongers, mainly Republicans, and from neo-con interventionists in both parties, demanding a one-sided anti-Russia policy focused on increased sanctions and potentially even military threats. But many moderate and liberal Democrats—and much of the media—are also joining the anti-Russia crusade. Some of those liberals and moderates have likely bought into the idea of American exceptionalism, accepting as legitimate or irrelevant the long history of U.S. election meddling around the world and viewing the Russian efforts as somehow reaching a whole different level of outrageousness. Others see the anti-Russia mobilization solely in the context of undermining Trump.

But at the same time, progressive Congress members should recognize that reports of Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 and 2018 elections cannot be dismissed out of hand. They should continue to demand that more of the evidence be made public, and condemn the Russian meddling that has occurred, even while recognizing that the most serious threats to our elections come from voter suppression campaignsat home more than from Moscow. And they have to make clear that Trump’s opponents cannot be allowed to turn the president’s infatuation with Vladimir Putin into the basis for a new Cold War, simply to oppose Trump.

CHINA: The broad frame of a progressive approach should be to end Washington’s provocative military and economic moves and encourage deeper levels of diplomatic engagement. This means replacing military threats with diplomacy in response to Chinese moves in the South China Sea, as well as significant cuts in the ramped-up military ties with U.S. allies in the region, such as Vietnam. Progressive and socialist members of Congress and other elected officials will no doubt be aware that the rise of China’s economic dominance across Africa, and its increasing influence in parts of Latin America, could endanger the independence of countries in those parts of the Global South. But they will also need to recognize that any U.S. response to what looks like Chinese exploitation must be grounded in humility, acknowledging the long history of U.S. colonial and neocolonial domination throughout those same regions. Efforts to compete with Chinese economic assistance by increasing Washington’s own humanitarian and development aid should mean directing all funds through the UN, rather than through USAID or the Pentagon. That will make U.S. assistance far less likely to be perceived as—and to be—an entry point for exploitation.

NATO: A progressive position on NATO flies straight into the face of the partisan component of the anti-Trump resistance—the idea that if Trump is for it, we should be against it. For a host of bad reasons that have to do with personal enrichment and personal power, Trump sometimes takes positions that large parts of the U.S. and global anti-war and solidarity movements have long supported. One of those is NATO. During the Cold War, NATO was the European military face of U.S.-dominated Western anti-Communism and anti-Sovietism. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, peace activists from around the world called for the dissolution of NATO as an anachronistic relic whose raison d’etre was now gone.

Instead, NATO used its 50th anniversary in 1999 to rebrand itself as defending a set of amorphous, ostensibly “Western” values such as democracy, rather than having any identifiable enemy—something like a military version of the EU, with the United States on board for clout. Unable to win UN Security Council support for war in Kosovo, the United States and its allies used NATO to provide so-called authorization for a major bombing campaign—in complete violation of international law—and began a rapid expansion of the NATO alliance right up to the borders of Russia. Anti-war forces across the world continued to rally around the call “No to NATO”—a call to dissolve the alliance altogether.

But when Trump, however falsely, claims to call for an end to the alliance, or shows disdain for NATO, anti-Trump politicians and media lead the way in embracing the military alliance as if it really did represent some version of human rights and international law. It doesn’t—and progressives in elected positions need to be willing to call out NATO as a militarized Cold War relic that shouldn’t be reconfigured to maintain U.S. domination in Europe or to mobilize against Russia or China or anyone else. It should be ended.

In fact, Trump’s claims to oppose NATO are belied by his actions. In his 2019 budget request he almost doubled the 2017 budget for the Pentagon’s “European Deterrence Initiative,” designed explicitly as a response to “threats from Russia.” There is a huge gap between Trump’s partisan base-pleasing condemnation of NATO and his administration&rdqou;s actual support for strengthening the military alliance. That contradiction should make it easier for progressive candidates and officeholders to move to cut NATO funding and reduce its power—not because Trump is against NATO but because the military alliance serves as a dangerous provocation toward war.

THE WAR ON TERROR

What George W. Bush first called “the global war on terror” is still raging almost 17 years later, though with different forms of killing and different casualty counts. Today’s reliance on airstrikes, drone attacks and a few thousand special forces has replaced the hundreds of thousands of U.S. and allied ground troops. And today hardly any U.S. troops are being killed, while civilian casualties are skyrocketing across the Middle East and Afghanistan. Officials from the Bush, Obama and Trump administrations have repeated the mantra that “there is no military solution” in Afghanistan, Syria, or Iraq or against terrorism, but their actions have belied those words. Progressive elected officials need to consistently remind the public and their counterparts that it is not possible to bomb terrorism out of existence. Bombs don’t hit “terrorism”; they hit cities, houses, wedding parties. And on those rare occasions when they hit the people actually named on the White House&rdqou;s unaccountable kill list, or “terrorist” list, the impact often creates more terrorists.

The overall progressive policy on this question means campaigning for diplomatic solutions and strategies instead of military ones. That also means joining the ongoing congressional efforts led by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and others  to challenge the continued reliance on the 2001 and 2002 Authorizations for the Use of Military Force (AUMF).

In general, privileging diplomatic over war strategies starts with withdrawing troops and halting the arms sales that flood the region with deadly weapons. Those weapons too often end up in the hands of killers on all sides, from bands of unaccountable militants to brutally repressive governments, with civilians paying the price. Congress members should demand an end of massive arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other U.S. allies carrying out brutal wars across the Middle East, and they should call for an end to the practice of arming non-state proxies who kill even more people. They should call for a U.S. arms embargo on Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Jordan and Israel (which presents a whole other set of arms-related challenges), while urging Russia to stop its arms sales to Syria, Iran and Pakistan. Given the power of the arms industries in the United States, arms embargoes are the most difficult—but perhaps the most important—part of ending the expanding Middle East wars.

Progressives in Congress should demand real support for UN-sponsored and other international peace initiatives, staffing whole new diplomatic approaches whose goal is political solutions rather than military victories—and taking funds out of military budgets to cover the costs. The goal should be to end these endless wars—not try to “win&rdqou; them.

ISRAEL-PALESTINE: The most important thing for candidates to know is that there has been a massive shift in public opinion in recent years. It is no longer political suicide to criticize Israel. Yes, AIPAC and the rest of the right-wing Jewish, pro-Israel lobbies remain influential and have a lot of money to throw around. (The Christian Zionist lobbies are powerful too, but there is less political difficulty for progressives to challenge them.) But there are massive shifts underway in U.S. Jewish publicopinion on the conflict, and the lobbies cannot credibly claim to speak for the Jewish community as a whole.

Outside the Jewish community, the shift is even more dramatic, and has become far more partisan: Uncritical support for Israel is now overwhelmingly a Republican position. Among Democrats, particularly young Democrats, support for Israel has fallen dramatically; among Republicans, support for Israel’s far-right government is sky-high. The shift is particularly noticeable among Democrats of color, where recognition of the parallels between Israeli oppression of Palestinians and the legacies of Jim Crow segregation in the United States and apartheid in South Africa is rising rapidly.

U.S. policy, unfortunately, has not kept up with that changing discourse. But modest gains are evident even there. When nearly 60 members of the House and Senate openly skipped Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech when he came to lobby Congress to vote against President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, the sky didn’t fall. The snub to the Israeli prime minister was unprecedented, but no one lost their seat because of it. Rep. Betty McCollum’s bill to protect Palestinian children from Israel’s vicious military juvenile detention system (the only one in the world) now has 29 co-sponsors, and the sky still isn’t falling. Members of Congress are responding more frequently to Israeli assaults on Gaza and the killing of protesters, often because of powerful movements among their constituents. When Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz acknowledged the divide: “While members of the Republican Party overwhelmingly expressed support for the move, Democrats were split between those who congratulated Trump for it and those who called it a dangerous and irresponsible action.”

That creates space for candidates and newly elected officials to respond to the growing portion of their constituencies that supports Palestinian rights. Over time, they must establish a rights-based policy. That means acknowledging that the quarter-century-long U.S.-orchestrated “peace process” based on the never-serious pursuit of a solution, has failed. Instead, left and progressive political leaders can advocate for a policy that turns over real control of diplomacy to the UN, ends support for Israeli apartheid and occupation, and instead supports a policy based on international law, human rights and equality for all, without privileging Jews or discriminating against non-Jews.

To progress from cautiously urging that Israel abide by international law, to issuing a full-scale call to end or at least reduce the $3.8 billion per year that Congress sends straight to the Israeli military, might take some time. In the meantime, progressive candidates must prioritize powerful statements condemning the massacre of unarmed protesters in Gaza and massive Israeli settlement expansion, demands for real accountability for Israeli violations of human rights and international law (including reducing U.S. support in response), and calls for an end to the longstanding U.S. protection that keeps Israel from being held accountable in the UN.

The right consistently accuses supporters of Palestinian rights of holding Israel to a double standard. Progressives in Congress should turn that claim around on them and insist that U.S. policy towards Israel—Washington’s closest ally in the region and the recipient of billions of dollars in military aid every year—hold Israel to exactly the same standards that we want the United States to apply to every other country: human rights, adherence to international law and equality for all.

Many supporters of the new crop of progressive candidates, and many activists in the movements they come out of, are supporters of the increasingly powerful, Palestinian-led BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement, that aims to bring non-violent economic pressure to bear on Israel until it ends its violations of international law. This movement deserves credit for helping to mainstream key demands—to end the siege of Gaza and the killing of protesters, to support investigations of Israeli violations by the International Criminal Court, to oppose Israel’s new “nation-state’ law—that should all be on lawmakers’ immediate agenda.

AFGHANISTAN: More than 100,000 Afghans and 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in a U.S. war that has raged for almost 17 years. Not-Yet-President Trump called for withdrawal from Afghanistan, but within just a few months after taking office he agreed instead to send additional troops, even though earlier deployments of more than 100,000 U.S. troops (and thousands more coalition soldiers) could not win a military victory over the Taliban. Corruption in the U.S.-backed and -funded Afghan government remains sky-high, and in just the past three years, the Pentagon has lost track of how $3.1 billion of its Afghanistan funds were spent. About 15,000 US troops are still deployed, with no hope of a military victory for the United States.

Progressive members of Congress should demand a safe withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan, acting on the long-held recognition that military force simply won’t work to bring about the political solution all sides claim to want.

Several pending bills also would reclaim the centrality of Congress’ role in authorizing war in general and in Afghanistan in particular—including ending the 2001 AUMF. Funding for humanitarian aid, refugee support, and in the future compensation and reparations for the massive destruction the U.S.-led war has wrought across the country, should all be on Congress’ agenda, understanding that such funding will almost certainly fail while U.S. troops are deployed.

IRAN: With U.S. and Iranian military forces facing each other in Syria, the potential for an unintentional escalation is sky-high. Even a truly accidental clash between a few Iranian and U.S. troops, or an Iranian anti-aircraft system mistakenly locking on to a U.S. warplane plane even if it didn’t fire, could have catastrophic consequences without immediate military-to-military and quick political echelon discussions to defuse the crisis. And with tensions very high, those ties are not routinely available. Relations became very dangerous when Trump withdrew the United States from the multi-lateral nuclear deal in May. (At that time, a strong majority of people in the United States favored the deal, and less than one in three wanted to pull out of it.)

The United States continues to escalate threats against Iran. It is sponsoring a growing regional anti-Iran alliance, with Israel and Saudi Arabia now publicly allied and pushing strongly for military action. And Trump has surrounded himself with war-mongers for his top advisers, including John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, who have both supported regime change in Iran and urged military rather than diplomatic approaches to Iran.

Given all that, what progressive elected officials need to do is to keep fighting for diplomacy over war. That means challenging U.S. support for the anti-Iran alliance and opposing sanctions on Iran. It means developing direct ties with parliamentarians from the European and other signatories to the Iran nuclear deal, with the aim of collective opposition to new sanctions, re-legitimizing the nuclear deal in Washington and reestablishing diplomacy as the basis for U.S. relations with Iran.

It should also mean developing a congressional response to the weakening of international anti-nuclear norms caused by the pull-out from the Iran deal. That means not just supporting the nonproliferation goals of the Iran nuclear deal, but moving further towards real disarmament and ultimately the abolition of nuclear weapons. Progressives in and outside of Congress should make clear that nuclear nonproliferation (meaning no one else gets to have nukes) can’t work in the long run without nuclear disarmament (meaning that the existing nuclear weapons states have to give them up). That could start with a demand for full U.S. compliance with the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which calls for negotiations leading to “nuclear disarmament, and on a treaty on general and complete disarmament.”

SYRIA: Progressive candidates and elected officials should support policies designed to end, not “win” the war. That means withdrawing troops, ceasing airstrikes and drone attacks, and calling for an arms embargo on all sides of the multiple proxy war. The civil war component of the multiple wars in Syria is winding down as the regime consolidates its control, but the sectarian, regional and global components of that war have not disappeared, so continuing a call for an arms embargo is still important. The first step is to permanently end the Pentagon’s and the CIA’s “arm and train” policies that have prolonged the war and empowered some of its most dangerous actors.

There will also need to be negotiations between the regional and global actors that have been waging their own wars in Syria, wars that have little to do with Syria itself, but with Syrians doing the bulk of the dying. That means support for the UN’s and other internationally-sponsored de-escalation efforts, and serious engagement with Russia towards a permanent ceasefire, as well as the arms embargo. U.S. policy should include absolute prohibitions on Washington’s regional allies—including Saudi Arabia and Turkey—sending U.S.-provided arms into Syria. And progressive supporters of diplomacy should also maintain pressure on the United States to back multi-lateral diplomatic processes organized by the UN and others—on humanitarian issues in Geneva, and political issues in Astana. Cutting the United States’ multi-billion dollar arms sales to Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Jordan, Turkey and other U.S. allies involved in the Syrian wars would also lend legitimacy to U.S. efforts within those diplomatic processes to press Russia to stop providing arms to the Assad regime.

IRAQ: Congress has largely abrogated its responsibilities even as the 15-year war initiated by the United States continues. Progressive policymakers would do well to join the existing efforts to end—not replace, but cancel—the 2002 Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq, and reopen congressional debate, with the goal of ending funding for war in Iraq once and for all. When President Obama withdrew the last troops from Iraq at the end of 2011, stating that “war in Iraq ends this month,” many assumed that the authorization ended as well. But it was never officially repealed and had no expiration date, and three years later Obama claimed that the then-12-year-old authorization justified the war against ISIS in Iraq. While Trump has relied primarily on the 2001 AUMF, the Iraq-specific authorization of 2002 remains in place and should be withdrawn. 

In the meantime, progressives in Congress should support many of the same policies for Iraq as for Syria: withdraw the troops and special forces, stop the assassination program that is the heart of Washington’s “counter-terrorism” campaign and cease sending arms. Congress should end funding to force the closure of the network of small “forward operating bases” and other U.S. military bases that may remain in U.S. hands in Iraq despite earlier agreements to turn them over to the Iraqi government. The U.S. must figure out new ways to provide financial compensation and support to the people whose country and society has been shredded by more than a dozen years of crippling U.S.-led economic sanctions bookended by two devastating wars (Desert Storm, starting in 1991, and the Iraq War, starting in 2003)—while somehow avoiding the further empowerment of corrupt and sectarian political and military leaders.

YEMEN AND SAUDI ARABIA: The ongoing Saudi-led war against Yemen reflects the most deadly front of Saudi Arabia’s competition with Iran for regional hegemony. The United States is providing indirect and direct support, including U.S. Air Force pilots providing in-air refueling so Saudi and UAE warplanes can bomb Yemen more efficiently, and Green Berets fighting alongside Saudi troops on the border, in what the New York Times called “a continuing escalation of America’s secret wars.”

The U.S.-backed Saudi war against Yemen has also created what the UN has declared the world’s most serious humanitarian crisis. Congress’ first action must be to immediately end all U.S. involvement in the war. Next, Congress must reject all approvals for arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the UAE as long as they continue to bomb and blockade Yemen.

Ending these arms sales may be a serious challenge, given the power of the arms manufacturers’ lobby, Israel’s strong support of Saudi Arabia against Iran and the fact that Saudi Arabia remains the top U.S. arms customer. But recent efforts and relatively close votes in both the House and Senate, while not successful, indicate that challenging the longstanding process of providing the Saudis with whatever weapons they want may be closer to reality than anticipated. The House called the U.S. military involvement in the Saudi war in Yemen “unauthorized.” Reps. Ro Khanna, Marc Pocan and others have introduced numerous House bills in recent months aimed at reducing U.S. arms sales and involvement in the Saudi-led assault. In the Senate, a March resolution to end U.S. military involvement in the Yemen war failed by only 11 votes, a much narrower margin than anticipated. Progressive candidates and new members of Congress should support all those efforts, and move further with a call for ending the longstanding U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia, especially military sales and support for the Saudi-Israeli partnership against Iran.

A QUICK GLANCE AT SOME OTHER POLICY QUESTIONS

NORTH KOREA: Progressive elected officials will need to support Trump’s diplomatic initiatives, challenging mainstream Democrats willing to abandon diplomacy because Trump supports it (however tactically or temporarily). Progressives will also need to condemn U.S. military provocations that undermine that same diplomacy, and build public and congressional support for the inter-Korean diplomatic moves already underway. That should include pushing for exemptions in the U.S.-imposed sanctions that would allow inter-Korean economic and other initiatives to go forward. Progressives in Congress can also play a major role in supporting people-to-people diplomacy with North Korea, and they can lead the way in replacing the current armistice with a peace treaty finally ending the Korean War.

AFRICA: Across the continent, there is an urgent need to reverse the militarization of foreign policy, including reducing the size, breadth of responsibilities and theater of operations of AFRICOM.  The wide-ranging but unauthorized and largely secretive special operations and other military actions across the continent violate not only international law, but U.S. domestic law as well.

LATIN AMERICA: In Latin America, there is an urgent need for a new anti-interventionist policy, not least to stop the current attempts to take advantage of serious domestic crises in Venezuela, Nicaragua and elsewhere. Progressives will need to challenge the U.S. economic and foreign policies that create refugees from Central America in particular (including the consequences of the U.S. wars of the 1980s), even while fighting to protect those migrants seeking safety in the United States as a result of those earlier policies. Regarding Mexico, Congress needs to fight for a U.S. position in trade negotiations that is not based on economic nationalism, but rather on making sure that Mexican workers and U.S. workers are both equally lifted up. Left policymakers will also have the chance to play a leading role in forging a new relationship with Mexico’s just-elected progressive President Lopez-Obrador. 

All of the areas where U.S. wars are or were underway, as well as places where U.S. economic and climate policies have helped create crises threatening people’s lives, also become areas from which migrants are forced to flee their homes. U.S. policymakers must acknowledge that U.S. policies are direct causes of the refugee crises that exist in and around the war zones and climate crisis zones of the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere—and that the refugees seeking asylum in Europe, and the far fewer trying to come to the United States, are a consequence of those policies. So progressive candidates and policymakers should support massive expansion of funding for these victims of war, including humanitarian support in their home regions and acceptance of far greater numbers of refugees into the United States. They must directly challenge the xenophobic policies of the Trump administration that include the Muslim Ban, the separation of children from their families at the border and the vast reduction in refugees accepted into this country. In Congress, that might include introducing bills to cut funding for ICE or eliminate the institution altogether.

Finally, progressive candidates and elected officials will need to continue to craft policy proposals that recognize what happens when the U.S. wars come home. This requires more voices in Congress challenging the military budget because it’s used to kill people abroad and because the money is needed for jobs, health care and education at home. It means challenging Islamophobia rising across the United States because of how it threatens Muslims in the United States and because it is used to build support for wars against predominantly Muslim countries. It means exposing—on the floor of the House and beyond—the fact that the Muslim bans targeted primarily countries the United States was bombing, sanctioning or stationing soldiers in. And it means being clear that protecting refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants has to include ending the wars that create refugees in the first place.

Certainly, we shouldn’t expect every progressive or even every socialist running for national office to become an instant expert on every complicated piece of U.S. foreign policy. And for those running for state and local office, there may seem to be even less urgency. But we’ve seen how the Poor People’s Campaign, with its inclusion of militarism and the war economy as one of its four central targets (along with racism, poverty and environmental destruction), has demonstrated to all of our movements the importance of—and a model for—including an anti-war focus within multi-issue state and local mobilizations. The Movement for Black Lives has created one of the strongest internationalist and anti-war platforms we’ve seen in years—including calls for cutting the military budget, supporting Palestinian rights, stopping the Global War on Terror and the so-called War on Drugs, ending the militarized U.S. interventions across Africa, and linking U.S. military and economic policies with the rise in Haitian and other—predominantly Black—immigration.

Immigrant rights activists are linking movements for sanctuary (and against ICE) with opposition to the wars that create refugees. Campaignsare underway to reject the training of U.S. police by Israeli police and military forces. Battles are being waged to get local law enforcement agencies to refuse Pentagon offers of weapons and equipment left over from U.S. wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere. These campaigns all play out at the local and state level.

So especially for those running for Congress, but really for all candidates at every political level and venue in this country, there is a clear need for a strong, principled position on at least a few key foreign policy issues. And the key to making that happen still lies with our movements.

RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - Officials say equipment found with "low levels" of plutonium and other radioactive contamination left the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and entered Richland by mistake.  The Tri-City Herald reports a message sent to Hanford employees Wednesday says a worker removed the spreader bar used at the Plutonium Finishing Plant without checking it for radiation late last month.

There are two related stories to discuss today, both on the subject of Intelligence. A word which, needless to say when referring to Washington, refers to "spying" instead of anything remotely like "smartness" or "proper brain function."

Specifically, President-elect Donald Trump has made it clear that he doesn't consider US intelligence agencies to be 100% reliable, especially when it comes to their consensus accusation that Vladimir Putin interfered with our election by disguising himself with a pair of Groucho glasses, then driving a schoolbus filled with Cossacks to various polling places in key electoral states.

But before Hope n' Change dives into the details of the "Russian hacking" story, let's look at Barack Obama's recent claim of advising Trump - strictly as a professional courtesy - that as President he should always trust the US intelligence community.

"There are going to be times," the miserable stain on the Oval Office said, "where the only way you can make a good decision is if you have confidence that the process is working, and the people that you put in charge are giving you their very best assessments."

Really, Barry? Is that how you've conducted your presidency? Not according to the Hope n' Change vault...






Let's review a few fun facts. As president, B. Hussein skipped the majority of his intelligence briefings including the one immediately following the debacle in Benghazi. Barry also had nothing but foreign policy failures, and repeatedly placed the blame on his intelligence agencies.

So why should Trump - or the rest of us - invest our trust in the intelligence agencies who failed to see the rise of Isis? Who missed nuclear weapons development by Iran during our negotiations? Who were unable to connect the dots preceding Putin's many successful aggressions - as well as those of China and North Korea.

These are the intelligence agencies whose keen insights helped bring about nightmare scenarios in Syria, Libya, and pretty much every other country which has mosques. Intelligence agencies which failed to flag September 11th as a potentially meaningful day for terrorists to attack in Benghazi.

Intelligence agencies which, at least according to the administration, found it "no big deal" that Hillary (as freaking Secretary of State) put all of our national secrets on an unguarded personal server just so she could dodge future Freedom of Information Act demands to see documents rightfully belonging to the American people.

All of which brings us back to the "Election hacking" story. The intelligence agencies have now offered up their (ahem) official report on this alleged election-changing, super-sophisticated act of cyber terror, and have found that (cue the shower-stabbing music from "Psycho") Vladimir Putin personally ordered a monumental campaign to undermine our election and put his personal buddy, Donald Trump, into office!

But there's one little problem. While the declassified report is happy to draw this apocalyptic conclusion, it offers virtually no proof. We're asked to accept this poppycock on sheer trust, which would be a lot easier if the Obama administration and intelligence agencies had even an iota of credibility anymore.

But let's look at a couple of important things the report says that we can agree with: there was no hacking or interference with any voting or vote-tallying machines, and the intelligence agencies do not assert that the alleged Russian campaign had any influence on voters or the election. Wow.

It is also noteworthy that the intelligence agencies were able to draw such detailed conclusions considering the DNC failed to cooperate with the investigation, and wouldn't grant the FBI access to their computers. And interestingly, the report fails to note that the sensitive emails eventually released by Wikileaks (again, without direct evidence of Russian involvement) weren't even obtained by "hacking," but rather by a simple "phishing" email sent to John Podesta, in which he revealed that his password (and the key to all of the DNC's documents) was..."password."

The report also states that Putin's evil plan to overthrow our election involved schemes like having Russian newscasts criticize Hillary Clinton more than Donald Trump. Which apparently made a huge impact on the many voters whose primary source of information was Russian newscasts.

We could go on and on (and already have!) but our point is this: thanks to the Obama administration our intelligence agencies no longer have a whit of credibility, nor does their preposterously politicized "Russian hacking" report.

Considering 8 years of wall-to-wall failures, it's not surprising that Americans have decided to turn their backs on alleged "Intelligence" in favor of Donald Trump's promise of common sense.


          2016 - The Year in Rebuke (Part Two)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

JULY

With the political world holding its breath in anticipation, Hope n' Change finally endorses a Presidential candidate...


While lacking the enthusiasm evinced by many Trump supporters, Hope n' Change opines that "Donald Trump is potentially a yuuuuge disrupter at a time when our political system needs huge disruption. Our nation would be far more likely to survive his possible policy failures than even a single term of Hillary Clinton's toxic policy successes."

This belief is immediately confirmed when yet another federal agency is revealed to have been corrupted by proximity to the Clinton Machine...


After laundry-listing the many, many ways that Hillary had lied, evaded, and thoroughly compromised national security with her secret email server, FBI Director James Comey decides that no charges should be pressed because:

A) He is apparently a complete political whore
B) His family was being held at gunpoint
C) He believes that women (bless their hearts) are just too darn stupid to understand computers, national security, and laws
D) Hillary made a pact with Satan which involves fellating lepers in Hell for all eternity
E) All of the above. Which, frankly, we're pretty sure is the right answer.

Energized by this undeserved "Get Out of Jail Free" card, Hillary immediately seizes on new ways to make voters hate her...


Following a black sniper's assassination of five Dallas police officers who were providing security for a "Black Lives Matter" protest, Hillary bravely declares that the actual problem is that white people need to do a better job of listening and, bizarrely, that Wall Street needs greater transparency. Based on her strong statement, an increasing number of voters begin to suspect she's using narcotics.

Meanwhile,  GOP heads explode when Senator Ted Cruz appears at the Republican National Convention and speaks passionately about the need to defend freedom and the Constitution, but fails to endorse Trump by name for reasons no one can explain...


But July isn't done with us yet. Following a series of scandals revealing sabotage against the Bernie Sanders campaign, the DNC meets to celebrate democracy by anointing a candidate selected by unelected "superdelegates"...


AUGUST

With the wind at her back, which is helpful in keeping her upright, Hillary starts fleshing out what revolutionary policies she hopes to bring to the presidency other than the ability to pee while sitting down...

But concerns grow about the candidate's health as she is increasingly seen struggling with simple tasks like speaking without coughing up a lung, getting both eyes to point in the same direction, or telling the truth...


But undaunted and pumped full of amphetamines and opioids,  Hillary throws herself into intense preparation for the upcoming Presidential debates...


And speaking of sex escapades (which is pretty much synonymous with speaking about the Clintons) another one rears its...uh...head when Anthony Weiner, the oft-disgraced husband of Hillary's right hand woman Huma Abedin, is discovered to be emailing bonergrams to an under-aged girl...


Saying "enough is enough," Huma gives up on Weiner (not that there's anything wrong with that) and prepares to face new challenges in...

SEPTEMBER

When asked to answer yet more questions about her totally illegal scheme to evade the Freedom of Information Act and, as an unexpected bonus, give away all of our nation's secrets, Hillary is struck - apparently forcefully - with a brilliant idea...


Yes, the woman who wants to be President of the United States claims to have such substantial brain damage that she can't remember anything which happened while she was engaged in criminal activity.  Which is to say her entire adult life.

Shortly thereafter, Clinton speaks to an adoring throng of hired enthusiasts at an LGBT fundraiser and makes a statement which convinces even hardened skeptics that she has gangrenous grey matter...


"To be grossly generalistic," she grossly cackled, "you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic— you name it!"

Surprisingly, at least to Democrats, it turns out that many Americans don't appreciate being mocked, disparaged, and slandered by corrupt elites. Which is why it's (ahem) fortunate for Clinton that the public is soon distracted by a terrorist bomb blast...


29 people are hurt (and thankfully none killed) when a bomb is detonated in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York. Chelsea Clinton swears "it's just a coincidence" and "I'm working on an alibi."

Hoping to get her media narrative back on track, Hillary Clinton puts avuncular socialist Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail to say that he no longer despises everything Hillary stands for, and that he's come to the life-changing (and possibly life-saving) realization that she is the most honest, refreshing, and ethical politician ever born...


In fairness to Bernie, maybe he was just trying on his "shameless whore" costume to make ready for...

OCTOBER

Suddenly, the campaign is rocked by a series of well-coordinated (if loosely fact-checked) attacks on Donald Trump's finances...


The NY Times goes "front page crazy" with a story screaming that over the past few years, Donald Trump may have paid all the federal income tax he legally owed - which possibly, and only possibly, equaled "none." Not only is "Man Pays Correct Amount of Taxes" not a scandal, it's not even interesting.

What is interesting is that the story was written based on illegally obtained information which was leaked to the public. Democratic spokespeople offer high praise for the publication of illegally leaked documents, then report a weird feeling "like a crow just stepped on my grave."


In a shocking revelation that even offends serial rapist Bill Clinton, an old audiotape reveals that Donald Trump once used the word "pussy" in a conversation which did not involve cats. Even worse, a (very small) parade of women come forward, dabbing tears, to share tortured memories of being "kissed without permission" by Donald Trump, who used only Tic Tacs for breath control.

Unfortunately for Hillary, none of this is as interesting as Wikileaks' release of thousands of documents detailing the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, Hillary's "pay for play" use of the State Department to solicit bribes, and the overall sleaziness of everyone in the Democratic party.

Suddenly finding illegally obtained information which was leaked to the public abhorrent, the media and the White House blame Russian hackers because it sounds better than "our own idiocy." Joe Biden warns of draconian counter measures...


In the midst of all this, early voting begins, with record numbers of voters flooding to the polls to decide which of the two least popular candidates in American history will win...


But wait! With Halloween in the air, James Comey doesn't need to dress up as a ghost to scare the sheet out of Hillary - he simply reopens her "thing that wouldn't die" email espionage case only days before the election.

Hilariously, it turns out that in the course of investigating Anthony Weiner's underage sexting activities, the FBI has discovered thousands of Hillary's State Department emails on his personal laptop...as well as on his laptop computer.


And so the stage is set for...

NOVEMBER

Following a hostage video in which James Comey, bruised and bound, says that nothing suspicious other than Top Secret documents was found on Weiner's "spank bank" computer, Election Day arrives at last.

Left-leaning media political pundits sport Cheshire Cat grins, and Hillary Clinton's team pops champagne corks as the poll results start to come in.

Soon after which the grins fade, the champagne goes flat, and (according to trustworthy sources on the Left) Armageddon arrives...


Trump wins to the shock and disbelieving horror of liberals everywhere...


Apparently unaware of how the American voting system works, those on the Left are further devastated by the realization that while Hillary won the popular vote, it's only the critical electoral college vote that decides the Presidency...


While many anti-Americans take the news of Trump's victory badly,  perhaps the most convincing display of grief comes from Fidel Castro who actually goes to the trouble of dropping dead...


Which at long last brings us to...

DECEMBER

In the weeks following the election, it becomes clear that American voters were sick of being denigrated, disrespected, and lied to by their own government. Tired of seeing their health insurance costs skyrocket while their benefits plummeted. And unwilling to accept a stagnant economy which seemingly offered jobs only to hedge fund managers and fry cooks.

Granted, not everyone saw the election results in the same way...


When his analysis is roundly laughed at, Barack Obama goes back to his default position of claiming that the election was somehow "hacked" by evil Russians who, inexplicably, liked the idea of Donald Trump having a nuclear arsenal.

The soon-to-be ex-president declares the alleged hacking to be a grave and immediate existential threat to our nation, then takes swift action by boarding Air Force One for another extended, multi-million dollar vacation in Hawaii...


Back on the mainland, the electoral college finally meets to officially cast their votes. And once again, a dazed and broken Hillary has to settle for second place...


With only days left in the year, Americans finally breathe a sigh of relief - confident that they can enjoy the holidays without any vacationing presidents suddenly launching a vicious sneak attack on one of our closest allies. They are, of course, wrong...


With assistance (and likely direction) from the Obama administration, the U.N. passes a resolution condemning Israel, eroding that nation's legitimacy and chances for eventual peace.  It is a transparently petty and vindictive act from a petty and vindictive president bent on burning the world down if he can't be in charge.

In the final days of his wretched administration, he also admits floods of refugees and illegals into the country, grants early release to a record number of felons, and puts thousands of new regulations in place to hamper the American economy under Donald Trump.

Which is why the stroke of midnight on December 31st has never been sweeter...


Happy New Year from Stilton Jarlsberg and Hope n' Change Cartoons...which, after 8 long years, finally has actual hope for change.

After repeatedly having his ass handed to him by Vladimir Putin for the past 8 years, Barack Obama decided yesterday that it was "now or never" to finally take strong action against Russia... whether Russia had done anything wrong or not.

Which is why, in reaction to the so-called "election hacking," Obama ordered 35 Russian diplomats (described by the White House as "intelligence agents") out of the country, closed a couple of domestic Russian facilities (described by the White House as "intelligence agencies"), and promised to unleash a cyber counterattack (described by the computer literate as "fat chance").

Unfortunately, despite requests from the Senate and House Intelligence Committees, Barry has failed to produce any compelling evidence that Russia was behind the Wikileaks document releases which revealed to American voters that the Democratic party, from Hillary on down, is populated by sleazy, bribe-mongering crooks, lunatics, and sex addicts. In fact, it's highly questionable whether any final intelligence analysis will even hit Obama's desk before he leaves office - making the timing of his saber-rattling highly suspect if not downright dangerous.

Mind you, Hope n' Change isn't suggesting that Russia didn't hack into the email servers of Hillary, Leon Panetta, and the DNC. Of course they did; the cyber-porch lights were left on, the cyber-front door was wide open, and there was a big cyber-sign on the porch saying "please don't steal anything while we're not home."

The secret keepers were, in the laughable words of James Comey, "extremely careless." Meaning neither Russia nor anyone else had to be extremely clever to steal documents.

But all of that being said, no evidence has been presented that it was Russia who gave damning but 100% truthful documents to Wikileaks. It could have been a mischievous high school kid or, our personal belief, a Democratic insider who wanted to save our nation from Hillary.

Which is why it's disconcerting that Obama, while still vacationing in Hawaii, has prematurely chosen retaliatory action against the only suspect who has a huge nuclear arsenal and pretty much no sense of humor.

Perhaps, before the big ball drops in Times Square on New Year's Eve, he just wants everyone (especially Historians) to think that after 8 simpering years in office his own balls have finally dropped.

AND ONE MORE THING...



Drink up, drive safely, and join us Monday for "2016 - the year in review!"

    TRANSCRIPT:

     

     

     

    3:00 p.m. EDT

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi, everybody. How are you today? And why are so many of you showing up on an August afternoon? You’re supposed to all be on vacation or something, but I notice a few empty seats. But Gardiner’s back from vacation. Gardiner, welcome.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How’ve you been?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I’ve been good.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Good. A couple announcements to start before we get started with your questions today.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    First, I would like to express our condolences to the victims of the recent earthquakes and also the aftershocks in Indonesia. The United States has experts and partner organizations on the ground. We’re consulting with the Government of Indonesia at this time. We’re closely monitoring the situation, and we stand ready to provide additional aid to the Government of Indonesia. Our U.S. consulate personnel are assisting affected U.S. citizens. At this time, we do not have any reports of U.S. citizen casualties associated with the earthquakes. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Indonesian people. As many of you know, we were recently on the ground in Indonesia and had some terrific meetings with government officials there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Next, I have some staffing news to bring you now. And I’m really excited about this one, because it affects our Bureau of Public Affairs and specifically the folks that you will working with. Today I’d like to announce that Robert Palladino will be joining our press team as the State Department’s deputy spokesperson. Robert is a career Foreign Service officer and I believe known well to some of you or perhaps many of you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Over the past year, Robert has served as director of press and acting National Security Council spokesperson. In that role he’s helped to prepare Sarah Sanders for her briefings at the White House. He was also a spokesperson to the White House press corps and worked as NSC communications lead for both Asia and Europe. Robert’s Foreign Service career has included postings in Washington, where he worked for our Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and the Office of the Under Secretary for Public Affairs and Public Diplomacy, and also on Capitol Hill. Overseas, he’s worked in Milan, Italy; Guangzhou, China; and also Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Prior to joining the State Department, he practiced law in Asia and Europe in the Army JAG Corps. His service included deployment to Rwanda. He is a graduate of Notre Dame University, Washington and Lee School of Law, the U.S. Army War College, and he also speaks Chinese and Italian. Pretty impressive.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We are delighted that he is coming back to the State Department from the White House. I know you will enjoy working with him. For those of you who have not met him, he is a terrific guy. We’ve worked closely together for the past year or so. I asked him what his children thought, because he has two young girls – I asked him what they thought of his job, and I love these quotes. His youngest daughter said, “I’m proud of America and I’m proud of you, Dad, but it sounds really boring.” And then his older daughter said this – and you’ll appreciate it – “But wait a minute, everybody yells questions and they’re angry. That’s the worst job in the world.” That actually might be the White House press corps, not you all. But we look forward to welcoming Robert when he joins us on the 20th of August. But try not to bug him between now and then; he’s on vacation with his family. So another addition to our press family.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And that’s it. With that, I’d be happy to take your questions.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, thanks. We’ll try not to be so angry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I said not you all.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Let’s – me, yes me. I just wanted to ask you briefly before I ask you about Yemen. I noticed the statement that you guys put out about Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwe elections and the Zambian decision to deport the opposition leader.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And in that statement it said that you are reviewing certain aspects of your cooperation with the Zambian Government. Can you be a little bit more specific? What aspects of --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of those will be conversations that will be had privately with both governments. But my understanding is that there are certain agreements in which that government was taking steps that the Zimbabweans weren’t completely familiar with and weren’t supportive of, and there were some concerns related to that. But let’s just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No, I understand, but I was just --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: But let’s just back up a couple steps for folks who’ve not been following this perhaps as closely as you have. Elections on July the 30th – those were promising, very promising. We thought it was a historic chance to sort of move beyond the political and economic crises of the past and toward a more democratic change and better dialogue in that country. People turned out massively in those elections. We put out a statement just after those elections complimenting them on those elections.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    However, the success in delivering an election day that was peaceful and open to international observers was then marred by violence, which we’ve been seeing and has been heavily reported, at least in the international press, over the past about week and a half. We’ve seen a disproportionate use of deadly force against protestors by the security forces, which is a great concern of ours. We’re concerned by those numerous reports of human rights violations since the elections had taken place about a week and a half or two ago. We have received credible allegations of detentions, of beatings, and other abuses of the people of Zimbabwe, particularly targeting opposition activists.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Now, the latest news today is the foreign – excuse me, the former minister of finance had left to go to Zambia. Zambia returned him to Zimbabwe, we understand. And some of this is still fresh so we don’t have all the details at this point. But I understand he was detained and possibly let go.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    So I’m going to pause there because some of this is still unfolding, and I don’t want to give you any inaccurate information since it’s still developing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I get that. I just wanted to know is this a threat to withhold or suspend some aid to Zambia when you say you’re reviewing certain aspects of our cooperation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get into that at this point, but we’re watching the situation carefully.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right. Let me ask you about this airstrike in Yemen, which appears to have killed dozens of children. The Saudis obviously are the ones who conducted this, but they do that with weapons supplied by the U.S., with training supplied by the U.S., and with targeting information, targeting data, supplied by the U.S. How can something like this happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: How can something like that report happen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think we would start by saying --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s more than a report. I mean, it’s – they admitted that it happened.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. How can situations like this happen? We don’t have the full details about what happened on the ground. We’ve certainly seen the news reports of what has been reported happened, okay? I can’t confirm all the details because we are not there on the ground.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    We can say that we’re certainly concerned about these reports that resulted – that there was an attack that resulted in the deaths of civilians. We call on the Saudi-led coalition to conduct a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident. We take all credible accounts of civilian casualties very seriously. We call on the parties to take appropriate measures to protect civilians in accordance with international law and urge all parties to investigate all reported incidents of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Well, they say – already the coalition says that they acted in accordance with international law. But if you look at the photographs, the video that come from the scene, it doesn’t look like that’s a really – that that’s a credible answer. So are you okay with the coalition on its own doing an investigation, or would you like to see some kind of an international component to it or an international investigation?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think I just answered that and we said that we would call upon the Saudi Government --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you’re --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to do a full and thorough investigation, as we always do. And we call upon all parties in any kind of situation like this to take appropriate measures to try to mitigate the risk of civilian casualties.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you don’t think --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: DOD and other entities put out reports on this after the fact as they all start to investigate, and so we will look forward to any information on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right. But my question is you don’t see a need for there to be something other than a coalition investigation, you don’t see a need for an independent --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I’m not going to get – this is something that is fresh, that just happened, so I’m not going to get ahead of any kind of investigation that may take place. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: It’s only the latest in a huge number of civilians killed during these operations though.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would encourage you to take a look – and that is we regret any loss of civilian life. That is something that the United States Government – in particular, any time you talk to the Department of Defense about civilian casualties, they will say the same thing --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- that – I’m not finished, okay? And they will say the exact same thing, that all parties take very strong responsibility and measures to try to protect against the loss of civilian life. As we have seen – and you all very rarely ask about the issue that has been unfolding and the devastation that has taken place in Yemen – let’s look at some of the things that have been happening in Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    You have the Houthi rebels who continue to attack Saudi Arabia. They continue to do that with Iranian weapons, missiles, and rockets. They continue to try to attack civilian infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, for example, and that is part of the reason why these actions are being taken.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Let me go back and remind you what I just said a moment ago, and that is we call for an investigation and we anticipate that a thorough investigation will be done. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The Secretary isn’t planning on having a conversation with --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hi, Nick.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Is this – hey, Heather. Is this latest incident or the previous incidents causing the U.S. to re-evaluate in any way the role that it’s playing in the situation, in terms of its relationship with Saudi Arabia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we provide a tremendous amount of humanitarian assistance in Yemen to try to support civilians in Yemen and try to mitigate against the devastation that’s taken place there in that country. I don’t have anything more for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But you also supply a tremendous amount of weaponry and the data for targeting to the Saudis.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, then – sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right? No?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: No.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Am I wrong? Is that wrong?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: That’s not wrong.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sorry, these ladies over here are laughing. On that I would refer you to the Department of Defense that is involved with that, but as you know, Saudi Arabia is an important strategic partner in the region to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just a follow-up on that. Hey. So obviously, there’s growing concerns in Congress about the toll this war is taking within Yemen. It’s the worst humanitarian disaster on the planet. Aren’t you concerned that incidents like this will further erode congressional support and lead to further support for legislation that could cut off Saudi Arabia from arms sales and the rest?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, I think that is an entirely hypothetical question and we don’t comment on congressional proposals in any event, but I would ask – all of you have been very silent on the issue of Yemen, and times --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Although Said has asked. You’ve been the one reporter who’s asked a lot about Yemen and the situation there.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well I would suggest that if you had more than two briefings a week and they lasted for longer than a half an hour or 40 minutes that you might get questions about something other than the actual main topic of the day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Matt, I think you and I talk every single day.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes, we do.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: You have my phone number. You have all my numbers, and anytime you want to talk about Yemen, I’d be more than happy to answer your questions and provide you additional expert briefings --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- on Yemen anytime anyone is interested, but I have not seen a major level of interest on the part of our press corps, with the exception of Said, on the issue of Yemen.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Why does that matter, though? There’s news today, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you request an expert on Yemen?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, certainly, I’d be happy to. Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Wait, so first of all, I think that when there have been attacks against Saudi installations or missiles and stuff, I think you’ve seen that there have been just as vigorous of reporting.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t – I disagree, but --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, I mean, that’s – it’s not our job to, like, sit here and go back and forth on that. We’re asking today. The U.S. has tried to increase its target training with – to try and improve the targeting of the Saudi coalition. Is that still continuing?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Elise, I think that would be a DOD issue, so I’d encourage you to talk with my --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But these are foreign – okay, but these are foreign military financing.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Which is out of the State Department.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And I would encourage you to talk to DOD about that. So some --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well, maybe --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Some of this – some of this is a State Department equity, but much of this is Department of Defense, so I’d encourage you to talk with them about it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Hey, Laurie.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. On Iraq, the road between Erbil and Kirkuk, which was cut as a result of fighting last October, is being rebuilt, but Baghdad has said that it will establish a customs border on that road and collect revenues. Is that consistent, a customs border in the middle of the Erbil-Baghdad road, in which one party, the Iraqi Government, is going to collect revenues? Is that consistent with your view of a unified Iraq?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would – there are other countries that have done this in the past, including our own country years ago in which this type of thing has been done. I think this is largely an internal matter for the Government of Iraq, between Iraq and Erbil, to try to work out. We do encourage them to resolve any remaining issues between Baghdad and Erbil.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: You don’t have a position beyond that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we believe that a strong KRG government within a unified and federal Iraq is something that’s essential to Iraq’s long-term stability and the enduring defeat overall of ISIS.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, if I could ask you about Turkey. So the deputy foreign minister was here; it seemed there was no progress. Is that the case? And was pastor – were the American hostages the only issues that were discussed or were there other questions like the Turkish purchase of the S-400 discussed as well?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, obviously you all know that we have a very broad relationship with Turkey and a host of issues that we talk about with the Turkish Government whenever we do meet. Yesterday we had a wide-ranging conversation with Turkish Government officials. We made it clear that Pastor Brunson needs to be returned home. Much of this, though, we’re not going to negotiate in public.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Go ahead. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can you tell us if you made any progress about the situation of Pastor Brunson?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I would say we would define progress as Pastor Brunson being brought home.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So in other words, no.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And so progress is --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Until he – until he’s --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Progress is Pastor Brunson being brought home to the United --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So until he’s home there is no progress?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- to the United States.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Did you give any deadline? Did you give Turkish officials any deadline?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Thanks. Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: I think progress is kind of coming closer towards an agreement, like you’re not – you don’t have full North Korean denuclearization but you say that there is progress in working towards that goal. So is there progress in coming to some kind of deal with the Turks or are you still as far apart as you were the day that he was being hospitalized?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I’m not going to characterize it that way. As you know, we had – we met yesterday. They had wide-ranging meetings at the State Department and with other departments here in Washington. I’d refer you to those other departments that met with the Turkish Government. The progress that we want to be made is to have Pastor Brunson return home. And I’ll leave it at that. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So is that saying you will not engage with the Turks anymore on this issue until Pastor Brunson comes home?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m not going to speculate on that, and I’m not going to get ahead of the administration on that issue. Hey, Said.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Hi. Thank you, Heather. Could we move – could you comment on the escalation in Gaza? There has been escalation in Israeli bombardment of Gaza as we speak.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m sorry, start that over again.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: There is an escalation as we speak of Israeli bombardment of Gaza. They said that they killed a 23-year-old woman, pregnant, with her toddler. Do you have any comments on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah. I mean, overall we’ve been watching this as it has been unfolding, and it’s a very concerning situation that has taken place in Gaza. Overall, we condemn the launching of missile attacks into Israel and call for an end to the destructive violence. We’ve seen reports that 180 or so rocket attacks have taken place, shot from Gaza into Israel, and we fully support Israel’s right to defend itself and to take actions to prevent provocations of that nature.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But this last round of bombardment, Israeli bombardment, actually began by the Israelis. It was not Hamas that started this latest round.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I’m not going to get into how this thing started. Let’s not forget that Hamas bears ultimate responsibility for the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza. It’s a tremendous concern of ours.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay. Let me ask you about the peace efforts that are taking place. Now, there are reports that the unveiling of the plan, the deal of the century, has been pushed back. Can – do you have any comment on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I would object to the premise of the question, your statement in that question. We have not unveiled the peace plan at this time. That will be unveiled by Mr. Kushner and Mr. Greenblatt when it is ready. And when it’s ready to be unveiled, they will unveil it.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And lastly, last week you guys released some funds or some aid to the Palestinian Authority. I believe it was sent to the security forces. Can you share with us the amount of that aid? Is that a one-time thing, or is it part of the sort of unfreezing of the funds to the Palestinian Authority?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I’m going to have to get back to you on that issue. I don’t have any information for you on that today. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Russia?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, two quick questions. First of all, on the sanctions that were announced yesterday, one of the requirements for Russia to avoid further sanctions is to allow inspections to make sure that they’re not using chemical weapons. Does the State Department have any reason to think that Russia is going to allow that? And is the U.S. expecting Russia to allow that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I mean, that’s asking us to look into the future, and we don’t know what the future holds. I think that’s a hypothetical question, so I don’t have an answer for you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But the U.S. is fully expecting to have some kind of inspections take place, then, according to this law?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that today, and I’m not going to get ahead of anything that happens in the near future. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Okay, well, that’s what the law says.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yep.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But my other question is on the – is the U.S. then currently preparing for this next round of sanctions, then?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: As you well know, we don’t forecast sanctions. We have complied with the law in announcing those sanctions just yesterday, and we will comply with the law going forward, of course, as we always would. Okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Heather, just to get a follow-on on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, sure. Hi, Gardiner.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you – in the case of Iran, you have this 12-point plan of what behavior you want the government to implement in order to lift sanctions. You have a whole series of sanctions that are now revolving around Russia having to do with CAATSA, Magnitsky, now weapons. Can you give us some global sense of what these sanctions are trying to achieve from an American foreign policy perspective? What are you looking for from Russia? Why do we have sanctions on them? What’s your goal? And when’s the – when’s the periodicity of these things?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. I think I would start by answering that question with this: That we approach every country very differently. Every country that we have a relationship or even countries that we don’t have relationships with are viewed through a separate lens. So what may be appropriate for one country is maybe not necessarily appropriate for another country.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The United States Government has determined that sanctions can be a very effective tool in trying to bring various governments to the table to negotiate with us or try to encourage countries to comply or to return to a better set of behaviors. So this is one tool that we have in a very big toolkit. The State Department works closely with Treasury and OFAC and other entities to implement, study, and enforce sanctions, and that is part of what you’ve seen yesterday. Let’s remember that one of the things that has brought North Korea to the table is sanctions. And we have found sanctions to be very effective in many cases around the world. So the U.S. Government looks at that as an overall tool.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Right, so North Korea is a great example. Sanctions – as a result, you want to get rid of their nuclear program. Again, Iran, you’ve got a list of 12 things. Venezuela, you’ve got sort of a clear list. I’m trying to understand what your policy is with Russia. You’ve got a variety – myriad now of sanctions. What’s your goal?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, I think the President has addressed this and so has Secretary Pompeo. We’d like to have a better relationship with the Russian Government, recognizing that we have a lot of areas of mutual concern. It is a major country; we are a major country as well. And so when you have that, you are forced to have to have conversations with other governments. And sanctions is a way that we can try to encourage better behavior on the part of government. Now, I’m speaking in a broad-based sense, but that’s one way that we can encourage better behavior. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Could I ask a follow-up on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Sure. What is your name, miss?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: My name’s Emily, I’m from Buzzfeed News.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Emily, hi.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So if these sanctions are in part meant to encourage better behavior with Russia, Russia today came out and said that these sanctions – sort of as was expected – that these sanctions are not in keeping with the spirit of Helsinki. So – and I understand these sanctions were – they’re in keeping with the law, et cetera, but does this – or to put it a different way, is the cooperation that was sort of established at Helsinki – is the U.S. Government still planning on having that with Russia after yesterday’s sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We tend to believe that dialogue is always an important issue. I think I had just addressed this with Gardiner, and that is trying to build a better relationship with countries that we need to cooperate with or we need to be able to have relations with, and that would be one example.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And then just on the other point on the second tranche, and I don’t mean to get you into hypotheticals, but yesterday at the briefing they did say that if Russia doesn’t do certain things, including sort of admit wrongdoing and say that they weren’t going to do it again, that there would be second tranche. And today, Russia said this is ridiculous, we didn’t do that. So if they keep that position for the next 90 days, won’t there – won’t there, under the law, have to be a second tranche?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: And that’s why I would go back and say that we will comply with the law. We are well aware of what the law contains; we will comply with the law. But I’m not going to get ahead of what could happen 90 days from now. Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: The same topic – same topic?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Janne, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Thank you, thank you, Heather. On North Korean and South Korean issues.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: And – recently, South Korea imported North Korean coal. What is the U.S. position on the smuggling of North Korean coal into South Korea? Is that – do you think this is the – South Korea has violated sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think – we’d say this: that we have a great relationship with the Government of South Korea. My understanding is that they are looking into reports of this. We encourage all countries to maintain sanctions, and to not skirt sanctions and make sure that sanctions are adhered to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But two days ago, John Bolton, national security advisor, and South Korean national security advisor Chung Eui-yong, they had telephone conversation and John Bolton said that he trust or believe in the South Korean Government. What does it mean that you trust the South Korean Government, so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Well, the Government of the Republic of Korea is an ally and longstanding partner of ours, and we closely coordinate with that government.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But allies – but they do something behind the United States is smuggling something else, so how you going to trust them?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, we trust when they say that they will investigate that they will investigate. We closely coordinate with them. They’ve been longstanding allies and partners, and we have a strong relationship with them.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Are you still investigations or waiting --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything more for you on that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right, thank you.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Thanks.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Kylie, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So there’s been discussion of potentially having another meeting with North Korea. Has there been any progress on that that --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: We have no meetings, no travel plans to announce today, and by the way, we just got back from a long flight, which I will remind you was a very long flight. Headed over to Asia, a long flight back. We’re okay with being here for a while.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: All right.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay. Hi. Go ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Well wait, can I just follow up real quick on that?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Just hold on, hold on, hold on. He asked first. Go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Oh, I’m sorry.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yes. So about the North Korean coal, yeah. And South Korean Government is going to announce the result of investigation about North Korean coal smuggling maybe later today. So now the issue is that – whether the United States is going to apply the second boycott to the Korean companies, which it appears to be violated the sanctions. So I just wonder whether you are going to apply the secondary boycott to the companies.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I think I just answered that, that the investigation was initiated by the Government of South Korea, and we will wait to hear from them on any announcements with regard to that, okay?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    And we’re going to have to wrap it up in just a minute. Elise, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Just on the – you said there’s nothing new to announce. Are the delegations trying to get another negotiating session? Like your team in Asia, are they trying to get another negotiating session together with the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Look, I mean, I can tell you we continue to have conversations virtually every day, every other day or so --

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: With the North Koreans?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: -- with the North Koreans, and when I say “conversations,” that can be by phone, that can be my message, that can be by email. Those are – they take different forms, those conversations do. So we continue to have conversations with the government. When – if and when we have travel announcements to make, I will certainly let you know, but we have nothing yet.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: But I mean, obviously that you’ll make those announcements, but I’m just wondering if like – if there is efforts being made to put together another negotiating session.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have anything for you on that right now.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Can I have one question on the sanctions?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Okay? Okay. Sir, go right ahead.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Yeah. Just to follow up, you said you have nothing planned, but Mr. Bolton mentioned that in the letter that Secretary Pompeo gave to Foreign Minister Ri, there was an offer to meet. Has North Korea responded to that offer yet?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I don’t have any information for you on that. This was a letter from the President to Chairman Kim, so I don’t have any visibility on what was actually in that letter or what conversations the White House may or may not be having. I’d have to refer you to the White House for anything on that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: So you can confirm that there was an offer?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: I can confirm there was a letter. Anything that the White House has said about that or Ambassador Bolton has said about that, I’d refer you back to them on those matters. When I have something to let you know, I certainly would be happy to.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, last question.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: (Off-mike.)

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    QUESTION: Two days ago, President Trump claimed most Chinese students in the United States are spies. I’m not asking you to comment on what he said, but State Department as a agency to issue visa to Chinese students, do you share the view – do you think most Chinese students in the United States are spies?

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    MS NAUERT: Yeah, I don’t have the President’s comments in front of me. I have not seen those comments, so I would hesitate to comment on his comments without having read it and had the full context. As you are well aware, we have many Chinese students studying in the United States. We have strong people-to-people ties with the Government of China, but of course there are concerns with some who might come into the United States and try to pick up some of our technology and other information and bring it back home for reasons that the United States Government would be concerned about. But we have a strong relationship with China and we enjoy having students studying in the United States from China, and I’ll just leave it at that.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Okay, thanks. We’ve got to go, guys. We’ll see you soon.

          Re: Tom Cotton is running for re-election. Duh.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I was hoping instead of running again he'd start a Go Fund Me for that sex change operation he's been dreaming of since he was little. Look at his face, look at his body, look at what he says and does...there is a giant secret he's hiding, a giant secret he's running from that makes him mean and willing to do anything for money.

He should have been removed from the Senate for colluding with a Zionist group to destroy the nuclear treaty with Iran for 1 million dollars, as Dr. Evil says. Colluding with the Russians is plenty dangerous but screwing with a nuclear treaty could get millions of innocent people killed.

I hate Cotton for the pure evil he does! If American voters don't throw a wrench in the Trumpublican Party plan this November, Tom Cotton may be our next Presidi..Dictator! Do you really want to see your grandchildren incinerated?

          Archbishop makes plea to remember Ukraine’s ‘silent and forgotten war’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 9, 2018 / 05:00 pm (CNA).- Four years of fighting in eastern Ukraine have led to “the biggest humanitarian crisis on the European continent since the end of the Second World War,” according to the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kyiv called on the international community and the Catholic Church not to neglect the crisis in Ukraine. He made the plea during his keynote address at the Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore on August 7.

Since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, the Ukrainian conflict has taken the lives of more than 10,000 people and has left 1.6 million people displaced, according to the United Nations.

“Besides all these casualties and human tragedies, there is still another hidden danger of the war in eastern Ukraine: This region is at risk of suffering a dire, long-lasting ecological catastrophe due to flooded mines and contaminated drinking water, which is comparable in scale to the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of 1986,” warned the archbishop.

“As many as 4 million people might be left without safe drinking water in the region,” he continued, “all of this is happening right now, in Ukraine, the largest country in Europe.”

The fighting has also damaged basic infrastructure. The World Health Organization documented  multiple attacks on Ukraine’s hospitals between 2014 and 2016.

“This is a silent and forgotten war. Because it is a ‘frozen conflict,’ no one speaks loudly about the war in Ukraine anymore,” said the archbishop.

Although a standing cease-fire exists in Ukraine, it was violated over 1,200 times in one week in July, reported the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Special Monitoring mission in Ukraine.

“Many specialists nowadays call this war in Ukraine a ‘hybrid war,’ that is, a war where not only traditional weapons are used on battlefields, but where all means of destruction, including economic and information warfare, are employed,” explained the archbishop, “Thanks to information technologies, modern wars are not limited to specific territories.”

“Everyone in the Western world today experiences the consequences of this information war, which targets truth by disseminating ‘fake news’ and molding public opinion according to dishonest goals. Unfortunately, not even your country or other developed countries in Western Europe have been spared from these attacks. Please remember: it is not only our war — it is the war for humanity!” said Shevchuk.

The Catholic Response

“How does the Catholic Church in Ukraine, and in particular our Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, respond to the needs of the millions of people suffering from the consequences of war?” Shevchuk asked the Knights of Columbus.

The archbishop’s response was “diakonia,” the Greek New Testament term for charitable service. In the case of Ukraine, “diakonia” entails “serving to one’s neighbor, taking care of those afflicted by the war, by providing them with spiritual guidance and often with social service as well,” he said.

“Charity is an antidote to egoism and indifference. I would say that charity is also a key to understanding the success of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine,” he continued.

The Knights of Columbus are a relatively new presence in Ukraine. The country’s first Knights of Columbus council was established five years ago -- just before Russia’s invasion of Crimea.

Today the Knights in Ukraine have dedicated much of their charitable efforts to aiding local civilians affected by the violence in the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Knights of Columbus organize summer rehabilitation camps for wounded soldiers, war veterans, and their families. They regularly visit the wounded in hospitals, fundraise for first aid equipment, and provide the disabled with free wheelchairs. One Knights of Columbus council in southeastern Ukraine runs a Christian youth summer camp for children living in immediate proximity to the combat zone.

“Our society probably does not yet realize the full scale of trauma caused by the war and that is why we, as a Church and as Knights of Columbus, need to invest so much of our energy and resources into the field of rehabilitation, in order to be able to heal the wounds of our people,” said Shevchuk.

Catholics are a minority in Ukraine, most of the local population are Orthodox Christians. The archbishop said that he was encouraged to see how both Roman and Greek Catholics work together in the Knights of Columbus. He said it shows “a wonderful example of the unity of the Catholic Church in Ukraine, so much needed in Ukrainian society today.”

On August 7, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko over the phone, reassuring him of U.S. support for Ukraine’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity,” according to State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.

A few weeks earlier, the State Department released the Crimea Declaration calling on Russia to to end its occupation of Crimea, saying, “The United States rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.”

In the meantime, the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine will continue to aid the those suffering from the violence.

          George Galloway: Showdown over Iran looms as Trump turns up the heat on Tehran      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Showdown over Iran looms as Trump turns up the heat on Tehran

George Galloway
George Galloway was a member of the British Parliament for nearly 30 years. He presents TV and radio shows (including on RT). He is a film-maker, writer and a renowned orator.
Showdown over Iran looms as Trump turns up the heat on Tehran
Operation Boot is back. The new American plan for regime change in Iran dawns this week with a re-imposition of economic sanctions against Tehran and the threat of more to come.
American exceptionalism in action as the whole world (minus Trump satrapies) rejects the move putting the EU on a collision course with Washington.
For nearly 50 years economic sanctions have been the default position of western countries seeking to bring others to heel, make them succumb, or in the most extreme circumstances roll over, cry "Uncle Sam" and be "regime changed".
The fact that quarantine - or siege - is an act of war rather than an alternative to war is easily elided with a compliant media.
For most of my life I have struggled to explain that the US embargo on Cuba for example –still more the claimed extra-territoriality of that embargo– as a result of which gigantic US fines are levied on foreign companies doing business with Cuba entirely legally under their own countries’ law. That the embargo on Cuba is lawless brigandry need hardly detain us. Perhaps St. Augustine said it best in his book "The City of God".
Describing an encounter on the high seas between Alexander the Great and a pirate ship, Alexander demands:
"How dare you terrorize these waters as a thief?"
The Pirate captain answers:
"How dare you terrorize the whole world? You with your great Navy, can call yourself an Emperor, and call other men as you please."
I lived up close and personal enough to smell it, the long devastating regime of economic sanctions against Iraq which killed 1.7 million of Iraqis, according to UN figures (not to be confused with the deaths during the invasion and subsequent occupation from 2003).
Among them were many children and I helped put their little white coffins into the baked earth amidst the wailing of their parents on many occasions when I was the only British politician travelling to Iraq.
The monstrous Secretary of State Madeleine Albright - now reborn as a critic of Trump's policy of "separating children from their families" - was in no doubt when she told Lesley Stahl on CBS News of the value of separating Iraqi children from their families forever for political purposes.
When asked about the policy she was implementing on Iraq which (at that time) had killed half a million Iraqi children she replied:
“I think this is a very hard choice. But the price, we think, the price is worth it.”
Neighboring Iran has endured endless twists and turns in western policy. Given that the country grows oil and gas rather than avocados is of course the reason. As Donald Rumsfeld reportedly said, in terms, "It’s not our fault God put America’s oil under other people's countries."
Under the dark reign of the self-declared emperor Pahlavi the Peacock Shah of Persia, Iran was the West's best friend. Indeed Britain and the United States had actually put Pahlavi on his ‘Peacock Throne’ overthrowing the elected premier Mosaddegh in Operation Boot in 1953. The moderate socialist Mosaddegh had made the fatal error of nationalising his own country’s oil, taking it from the big western oil companies. His fate was sealed.
Iran then became a byword for torture and repression until the 1979 overthrow of the whole regime by millions of Iranians on the streets - far too many to shoot.
Iran has been ostracized, invaded, subverted and sanctioned ever since.
The first rays of light in this dark story appeared with the P5+1 Nuclear deal the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with Iran in which Iran undertook to so verifiably limit its nuclear energy industry as to preclude forever the creation of a nuclear bomb (this despite the fact that most of Iran's adversaries in the region and beyond bristle with nuclear weapons or live under the military promise of defense by the nuclear weapons of others.
It was a good deal. But it was negotiated by Barack Obama on the American side and one of President Trump's primordial obsessions is to destroy anything with Obama's signature on it.
But there was a major problem in Trump's determination to wreck the Iran Nuclear Deal. This was a solemn and binding Treaty not between the US and Iran but between Iran the US, Russia, China and the EU.
A major test immediately loomed - would after token protests the European Union tamely bow down to Trump, the bull in the China shop?
Not yet at any rate. Indeed all the signs are that this is the first pan-European revolt against US hegemony, more significant in fact than the refusal of France and Germany to join the Bush and Blair invasion of Iraq.
The EU has enforced its "Blocking Statute" to protect its firms from the latest round of US Sanctions on Iran which came into effect at midnight eastern standard time Tuesday. Even harsher sanctions will be imposed by Trump in November - giving rise to widespread speculation in Iran that the Islamic Republic will preempt it with an "October surprise" rather than go quietly into that goodnight.
The Blocking Statute has never been used by the EU before (though it has existed more than 20 years). It is thus a significant assertion of European rejection of an American policy almost bereft of support outside Israel and Saudi-Arabia.
But it may be more symbolic than real. First, all 27 EU countries will have to incorporate specific rejection of the US sanctions on Iran into their domestic rules. Time consuming, and wide-open to US subversion of the process. There are plenty of US satrapies in the EU. Moreover European companies themselves (as is the case in trade with Cuba) are quite likely to roll-over and cry uncle for fear of losing their markets in the US.
Symbolic or not though it is a further sign of American isolation on foreign policy issues and a further stick for the US Democrats to beat President Trump with in the run-up to the mid-term elections in November. The Democrats prefer war with North Korea and peace with the Islamic Republic of Iran. As the Americans say "Go figure"...

[NOTA DE ESCLARECIMENTO]
A organização da III Semana da Diversidade vem, por meio desta nota, prestar alguns esclarecimentos mediante a grande repercussão acerca da divulgação da programação completa do evento.

A III Semana da Diversidade tem por objetivo trazer para o espaço universitários assuntos que são pouco abordados em nossa formação e que consideramos relevantes para a formação de bons profissionais de saúde. Recebemos muitas críticas no que diz respeito à relevância dos temas que selecionamos para os eventos deste ano. Todo ano surgem inúmeras ideias, que são muito debatidas entre as pessoas envolvidas na organização, até que são selecionados os que julgamos de interesse, de inovador e de relevante na área da saúde. Claramente existe um recorte, focando em questões de gênero e sexualidade, mas temos clareza que esses não são os únicos assuntos negligenciados e importantes em uma formação médica.

No entanto, a população LGBT traz demandas específicas de saúde e, mais, é marginalizada socialmente, tendo o evento, portanto, também um objetivo de promover a integração e tratar de temas ignorados na sociedade como um todo. Essas particularidades em saúde ainda não são debatidas em sala por não estarem incluídas no currículo nuclear da medicina, então acreditamos ser necessário trazê-las para o meio acadêmico. As minorias sociais existem, procuram o serviço de saúde, e precisamos aprender a atendê-las com dignidade, respeito e qualidade.

Entendemos que a USP é uma universidade pública e que o espaço da nossa faculdade é mantido por recursos públicos; mas, em momento nenhum, indivíduos são impedidos de organizarem seus próprios eventos aqui dentro, desde debates políticos, aulas de ioga e meditação, apresentações de dança e música, até eventos de formação e extensão na área da saúde, como é a nossa programação. A Semana da Diversidade da FMUSP foi organizada com o apoio do Centro Acadêmico Oswaldo Cruz (CAOC), e todas e quaisquer despesas com alimentação e transporte de convidados, quando houve, bem como a divulgação dos eventos serão pagas pelo CAOC. Assim, esclarecemos novamente que não é dinheiro da Faculdade que está sendo usado para promover a Semana, e sim o dinheiro obtido autonomamente pelo CAOC. A direção da Faculdade em nenhum momento se envolveu com o planejamento ou organização do evento - embora não entendamos que isso seria de qualquer forma problemático.

Falando especificamente dos dois eventos na programação que causaram mais polêmica - Oficina de Siririca e Gaymada -, queremos dar nosso parecer já que as informações divulgadas foram um tanto distorcidas. Reiteramos que nenhum desses dois eventos teve custo algum, se a preocupação maior é o gasto do dinheiro público.

Sobre a Oficina de Siririca, ressaltamos o que já foi colocado na descrição do próprio evento: ela não será prática, não se trata de um evento para a masturbação de mulheres e homens trans, mas sim um evento sobre a sexualidade delxs. O nome desse evento é apenas uma alusão, feita com a intenção de, sim, chocar e trazer atenção a um assunto que continua, infelizmente, sendo um tabu. O intuito da oficina não é ensinar a siririca, mas discutir, a partir dela, a sexualidade das mulheres no nosso contexto histórico-social: como muitas vezes as mulheres são reprimidas, como isso impacta sua sexualidade e como falar sobre isso abertamente auxilia a jornada de autoconhecimento do corpo e empodera as mulheres. Trata-se de tentar mudar uma realidade social na qual as mulheres são taxadas de putas e depravadas se resolvem expressar abertamente e abraçar a sua sexualidade. Trata-se de mostrar que não é vergonhoso conhecer o próprio corpo e ter autonomia para se proporcionar um orgasmo - homens cisgêneros vêm fazendo isso desde sempre sem serem julgados, então por que essa repressão quando se trata de mulheres e homens trans? Trata-se de discutir maternidade compulsória, violência sexual e outros tantos temas importantes. A polêmica em torno desse evento só ressalta a sua importância.

A Gaymada, por sua vez, é um evento organizado junto a um grupo que organiza jogos de queimada voltados para a população LGBT pela cidade, com o objetivo de ocupar os espaços públicos e promover integração entre essa população. É apenas um evento lúdico e esportivo.

Concluindo, entendemos que, para além do entendimento de anatomia e fisiopatologias, faz parte da nossa formação como profissionais da saúde e como cidadãos tentar entender as diversidades com que vamos nos deparar ao longo das nossas vidas. Não podemos simplesmente ignorar nosso papel social e potencial de trazer melhorias ao atendimento da população. Por isso acreditamos na importância de debates esclarecedores, que nos tirem da zona de conforto, e por fim nos instiguem a refletir e chegar a propostas factíveis de mudanças significativas na sociedade e, mais especificamente, na nossa área de atuação profissional, no serviço de saúde, sobretudo tendo em vista que o foco de nossa atuação se dá por meio do SUS: saúde pública e ampla para toda e qualquer pessoa da população brasileira.

Sem mais,

Organização da III Semana da Diversidade da FMUSP

RESPOSTA DO EDITOR DO ATAQUE ABERTO: 

1. Com exceção da Psiquiatria, NÃO EXISTE nenhuma outra especialidade da Medicina que deva se preocupar com "aspectos específicos" da Homossexualidade a ponto de justificar mudança no currículo da formação. Isso é verdade e está LONGE de constituir ofensa, vergonha ou preconceito. 

2. A população LGBT está muito, muito longe de ser "marginalizada" no Brasil e, ainda que fosse "marginalizada", não é função dos futuros médicos brasileiros resolver este problema. 

3. Mesmo SEM usar dinheiro público e SEM a Participação da Faculdade de Medicina da USP, é o nome e a imagem da Instituição que está sendo exposta perante uma população desesperada pelo sucateamento da Rede Hospitalar, pelo controle da Saúde Pública e  pelo desvio de verbas por parte de COMUNISTAS que controlam o Ministério da Saúde e todos os níveis dos serviços públicos.  

4.  É uma mentira patética, chega a ser pueril afirmar que "as mulheres são taxadas de putas e depravadas se resolvem expressar abertamente e abraçar a sua sexualidade." Nós vivemos no Brasil, não na Arábia Saudita ou no Iran e "salvar mulheres brasileiras do preconceito" não é tarefa de NENHUM médico. 

5. Tendo ficado claro, através da própria "Nota de Esclarecimento" dos senhores que o evento não tem fim lucrativo e que não foi "gasto dinheiro público", sabendo que é MENTIRA dizer que existem aspectos da Anatomia e da Fisiologia que sejam "diferentes" nos Homossexuais (o que seria FUNDAMENTAL para criação de uma cadeira de Medicina dos Gays) o que deve ficar claro para toda população brasileira não é o aspecto "moral" daquilo que os senhores fizeram; mas o aspecto POLÍTICO. 

O Centro Acadêmico da Faculdade de Medicina da USP organizou "Semana da Diversidade" para cumprir com os compromissos da Revolução Cultura Gramsciana em vigor em todo Brasil. Quem fez isso não é médico, não é estudante de medicina, não é gay nem "transformador social" - não passa de militante político de Organizações Criminosas como PT, PSOL e PC do B. A Direção da Faculdade de Medicina da USP, ou por concordar com estas posições ou por COVARDIA, é conivente e deve, sim, ser responsabilizada pelos fatos.

          U.S. Restores Economic Sanctions On Iran      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: Now that the Trump administration has pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, it is reimposing sanctions that had been lifted under the deal starting at midnight. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. MICHELE KELEMEN, BYLINE: The sanctions being snapped back now make it harder for Iran to trade in gold and precious metals, graphite, aluminum and steel. The U.S. is also trying to block the Iranian government from acquiring U.S. dollar banknotes and is hitting the automotive and airline industries. Those are relatively small compared to the sanctions on Iran's oil and shipping sectors that go back into force on November 5. Trump's national security adviser John Bolton told Fox News that the U.S. is determined to pressure Iran to change its behavior. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) JOHN BOLTON: The pressure on the Iranian economy is significant. The value of its currency is going through the floor. We've seen public reporting of massive

I'm no lawyer, I just quoted one. I do know that since GWB things have happened that make Nixon look like a Boy Scout and nothing ever happens. Let's say you are right, then we get Pence who is far worse in my opinion. If you're hoping for Trump and Pence impeachment and rolling Hillary into place , she said on the campaign trail that she would nuke Iran, amongst other choice pyschopathic rantings. FWIW, the U.S. has "intervened", violently at times, in many elections around the globe, to say nothing of Israel's interference in US elections which is far worse than anything Russia did. Anyone who wants nuclear armed Russia as an enemy is a drooling moron.

          Archbishop makes plea to remember Ukraine’s ‘silent and forgotten war’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 9, 2018 / 05:00 pm (CNA).- Four years of fighting in eastern Ukraine have led to “the biggest humanitarian crisis on the European continent since the end of the Second World War,” according to the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.

Archbishop Sviatoslav Shevchuk of Kyiv called on the international community and the Catholic Church not to neglect the crisis in Ukraine. He made the plea during his keynote address at the Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore on August 7.

Since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014, the Ukrainian conflict has taken the lives of more than 10,000 people and has left 1.6 million people displaced, according to the United Nations.

“Besides all these casualties and human tragedies, there is still another hidden danger of the war in eastern Ukraine: This region is at risk of suffering a dire, long-lasting ecological catastrophe due to flooded mines and contaminated drinking water, which is comparable in scale to the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster of 1986,” warned the archbishop.

“As many as 4 million people might be left without safe drinking water in the region,” he continued, “all of this is happening right now, in Ukraine, the largest country in Europe.”

The fighting has also damaged basic infrastructure. The World Health Organization documented  multiple attacks on Ukraine’s hospitals between 2014 and 2016.

“This is a silent and forgotten war. Because it is a ‘frozen conflict,’ no one speaks loudly about the war in Ukraine anymore,” said the archbishop.

Although a standing cease-fire exists in Ukraine, it was violated over 1,200 times in one week in July, reported the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s Special Monitoring mission in Ukraine.

“Many specialists nowadays call this war in Ukraine a ‘hybrid war,’ that is, a war where not only traditional weapons are used on battlefields, but where all means of destruction, including economic and information warfare, are employed,” explained the archbishop, “Thanks to information technologies, modern wars are not limited to specific territories.”

“Everyone in the Western world today experiences the consequences of this information war, which targets truth by disseminating ‘fake news’ and molding public opinion according to dishonest goals. Unfortunately, not even your country or other developed countries in Western Europe have been spared from these attacks. Please remember: it is not only our war — it is the war for humanity!” said Shevchuk.

The Catholic Response

“How does the Catholic Church in Ukraine, and in particular our Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, respond to the needs of the millions of people suffering from the consequences of war?” Shevchuk asked the Knights of Columbus.

The archbishop’s response was “diakonia,” the Greek New Testament term for charitable service. In the case of Ukraine, “diakonia” entails “serving to one’s neighbor, taking care of those afflicted by the war, by providing them with spiritual guidance and often with social service as well,” he said.

“Charity is an antidote to egoism and indifference. I would say that charity is also a key to understanding the success of the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine,” he continued.

The Knights of Columbus are a relatively new presence in Ukraine. The country’s first Knights of Columbus council was established five years ago -- just before Russia’s invasion of Crimea.

Today the Knights in Ukraine have dedicated much of their charitable efforts to aiding local civilians affected by the violence in the Donbas region of Eastern Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Knights of Columbus organize summer rehabilitation camps for wounded soldiers, war veterans, and their families. They regularly visit the wounded in hospitals, fundraise for first aid equipment, and provide the disabled with free wheelchairs. One Knights of Columbus council in southeastern Ukraine runs a Christian youth summer camp for children living in immediate proximity to the combat zone.

“Our society probably does not yet realize the full scale of trauma caused by the war and that is why we, as a Church and as Knights of Columbus, need to invest so much of our energy and resources into the field of rehabilitation, in order to be able to heal the wounds of our people,” said Shevchuk.

Catholics are a minority in Ukraine, most of the local population are Orthodox Christians. The archbishop said that he was encouraged to see how both Roman and Greek Catholics work together in the Knights of Columbus. He said it shows “a wonderful example of the unity of the Catholic Church in Ukraine, so much needed in Ukrainian society today.”

On August 7, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko over the phone, reassuring him of U.S. support for Ukraine’s “sovereignty and territorial integrity,” according to State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert.

A few weeks earlier, the State Department released the Crimea Declaration calling on Russia to to end its occupation of Crimea, saying, “The United States rejects Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea and pledges to maintain this policy until Ukraine’s territorial integrity is restored.”

In the meantime, the Knights of Columbus in Ukraine will continue to aid the those suffering from the violence.

Most of the credibility that America has lost came when Obama first opened the matter up to Congress. It matters little to Iran whether Congress approves or rejects a Syrian strike, because the deliberations are so different from what we’ll see if Iran hurtles toward nuclear breakout capacity. Iran was most interested in whether Obama could summon allies, and then his own courage, to defend a red line that he personally set. He could not. If you’re Iran, the major lesson is that the Obama administration is weak when it’s trying to mount backing for military action.

We'll use these sessions to hone our use of words as tools to reveal truth, neutralize White people. We'll examine news reports from the past seven days and - hopefully - promote a constructive dialog. #ANTIBLACKNESS Young scholars across the country prepare to celebrate an educational landmark with their spring graduation, sixteen black cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point faced possible disciplinary action for having the gumption to take a photograph with black fists raised. Officials said this uppity act may have been an unauthorized political act showing solidarity or support of the Black Lives Matter movement. They've since decided against taking punitive action. The killer of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman, continues doing his part to combat the threat of BLM. He's reportedly auctioning the gun he used to kill the black teen in 2012, and will allegedly use a portion of the profits to "fight Black Lives Matter." While President Obama announced that he will be the first sitting United States president to visit Hiroshima, Japan since the nuclear destruction of World War II, presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump continues his unabated march to the White House. The New York Times reported that many White Trump supporters are deceiving pollsters by not publicly declaring their support of Trump for fear of being branded a Racist. This would seem to strengthen the likelihood of Trump prevailing in November, while simultaneously contradicting the idea of Whitefolks being ignorant about Racism. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943# The C.O.W.S. archives: http://tiny.cc/76f6p

          Live & Undercover: ‘BlacKkKlansman’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ron Stallworth lived it, wrote about it and now Spike Lee has filmed it. BLACKkKLANSMAN is Stallworth’s true story of how as a Colorado Springs African-American undercover cop he infiltrated the local Ku Klux Klan chapter in 1979 so successfully they voted him president.  In person during a nearly half-hour interview at the Essex House Stallworth, who was in law enforcement for nearly 40 years until he retired in 2006, emerges as an ideal interviewee. He answers questions as if he’s on the witness stand, answering in complete, direct sentences in a clear measured cadence.  It reminded me of the old Fifties documentary-like TV series DRAGNET where the star-producer Jack Webb’s Joe Friday always said, ‘Just the facts, ma’am.’

Stallworth, 65, was born in Chicago, raised in El Paso, TX and was the first African-American in the Colorado Springs Police Dept. in 1969 as a Police Cadet. In 1979 a local paper’s Want Ad from soldier at Fort Carson announced he was founding a new KKK chapter. Stallworth picked up the phone, called the soldier, impersonating a white recruit.  Thus began the undercover sting operation.  Eventually he talked to the head of the KKK, the Grand Dragon himself David Duke, complaining that he was still waiting to get his membership card. Duke personally signed and mailed it, where it was framed and hung in the police station. The case was kept secret until Stallworth published his memoir in 2014. A revised version with 8 pages of photographs was published in July by Flatiron Books with a movie tie-in cover. The book is subtitled: RACE, HATRED AND THE UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION OF A LIFETIME.  The interview has been slightly condensed and edited.

 

Q:  If you’re here Ron, you are happy with the movie. What did you think the film got right in the best way?

RON STALLWORTH: The movie captured the essence of me at 25, going thru this investigation. The problems I had internally, initially to launch it. The problems of working within the police department when I first got hired.  They took some liberties there. I was 19 when I got hired and I wasn’t a police officer, I was a police cadet working in the civilian support capacity. They made it a composite for the purposes of the movie, but they captured what was going on in that environment with officers coming to the Records Bureau and asking for a record on a ‘toad.’ Which was a code word for blacks back then.  It captured things like that very well.  The encounters I had with the Klan members, the phone conversations – it captured that very well to the degree that it was touched upon.  All in all Spike did a masterful job putting his piece together.  What I REALLY liked was the fact that he connects the historical thread between the Confederacy, David Duke the Klan leader I was dealing with, the Charlottesville incident and Donald Trump. Masterful connecting that thread – and I applaud him for it.

 

Q: Ron has a great line in the movie about David Duke –

RS: ‘Do you really think there could be somebody like that in the White House?’ That was never said by me. But that was a subtle reference to what we have today.

 

Q: I talked to Washington yesterday and he said there could be a whole other movie about your issues getting into the Colorado Springs police force. In the movie all we see is Frederick Weller’s smarmy racist cop.

RS:  Weller played that character to the extreme – I never encountered anything like that.  It was very subtle. When I got hired at the age of 19 there were no blacks in the department. Period. For about four months I was the only black in the department. So things that were said or done were done very subtlely done. The most overt act, if you will, was the use of the word ‘toad’ when they would come to me in the Record Bureau and ask me to run a record on a ‘toad.’ My form of rebellion was when John David says, ‘There are no toads here.’  Once I figured out – because it took me a while to figure it out – to notice that every time I was checking up on a ‘toad’ the ‘toad’ was black.  That’s when I realized toad was a code word they used for black names.  When I figured it out, I stopped responding to it. If they came in I would ignore the request.  If they said, ‘Speak a little louder,’ I’d ignore it. Finally they’d say, ‘CADET, I’M TALKING TO YOU. GIVE ME A RECORD ON’ – whatever the person’s name is. They’d tell me the date of birth and ethnicity and at that time I’d respond.  If they ordered me, I’d say, ‘I can’t do this. We don’t have any toads here. We have people. If you give me the name of the person that you’re looking for, I can look it up.’  That was my form of rebellion. 

 

Q: What was the reason this was kept secret for 35 years – until you published your memoir?

RS: The investigation? There was no reason.  Other than I didn’t feel like writing the story.

 

Q: But there was never anything in the paper?  It basically was that the Klansman that were in the military were sent elsewhere?

RS:  Two who were at NORAD [their fingers were on nuclear triggers] were transferred out. But there was no publicity because I was ordered to destroy the files when the Klan decided they wanted Ron Stallworth to be the local chapter leader. The chief basically said, ‘Shut the investigation down now. We’ve gone far enough.’ I argued against it; he was adamant. ‘Shut it down.’ Then he told me to destroy all the files that had been generated. He said, ‘I don’t want it to leak out that we had cops in the Klan. Destroy the files. Don’t talk to anybody about it.’

 

Q: And you kept the files?

RS:  First opportunity after being told that, I walked out of the office with two notebooks about three inches thick with reports. That’s why I have my KKK certificate [he takes out his wallet and shows me his Klan membership card].

 

Q: For 1979.  When you retired in Utah from Public Safety chief, that’s when you wrote your memoir?

RS: I retired in 2006. I didn’t start writing until 2013. Why? I talked about writing the story for years but I never had the gumption until 2013. ‘Now’s the time.’

 

Q:  When Spike took on the movie – I know John David said Spike did not want him to meet you until they began filming – did Spike not want to see you as well?

RS: I didn’t meet Spike until they brought me to Brooklyn last October for the cast reading.  That’s when I met John David, Topher Grace [who plays David Duke], Adam Driver, Laura Harrier. I met them all at that time. John David told me then that he was not going to imitate me. He said, ‘I can’t imitate you, I’m just going to try and channel you. Try to capture the essence of you.’  He captures the 25 year old me very well.

 

Q: Did you have an Afro like that?

RS: Maybe an inch shorter. Yes, I did have an Afro similar to that.

 

Q: And did you have a beard?

RS: At various times in my undercover career I had either a full beard, a short-cropped beard, Fu Manchu, a plain simple moustache or just a goatee. We did that – generally we would  have a look that we would maintain for anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Then change our facial features, change our hairstyle, so we would look different and believe it or not it worked. One time I made a drug case against a guy wearing a full beard and 6 months later I trimmed it into a goatee and made another drug bust with the same guy -- and he didn’t recognize me.

 

Q: We don’t say criminals are the smartest people. The movie has your first undercover assignment covering a Stokely Carmichael rally and Ron gets involved with a woman he meets there.  Was that invented for the movie?

RS:  Yes, because the love interest was part of the script.  It didn’t happen in real life. Stokely Carmichael actually happened. 

 

Q: Were you married during this time?

RS:  No.

 

Q: You were free and unattached and could risk your life without upsetting anyone except maybe your parents.

RS:  I didn’t care what anybody thought, I was a grown adult. My mother never liked that I worked undercover.  She always worried.  ‘Don’t worry, it’s my job.’ My aunt who helped raise me, her older sister, was concerned. I told her the same. The woman I was dating and later married, she became my first wife – she deceased now. Cancer.  She knew some of the undercover stuff I did, not all  because I didn’t tell her everything. She never worried about it other than to be careful because she knew I was going to do it anyway. It’s something I wanted to do.

 

Q: Where did this passion to be undercover come from Ron?

RS:  In terms of a police career that’s what I wanted to do. That developed when I was working in the I.D. Bureau – I was 19 at the time – the narcotics officers would come up and ask for records. When I gave them the records, I saw them and the first time this happened I was, WHAT is this long-haired hippie guy coming up to me, asking for a record, for? Who the hell does he think he is! It had to be explained to me: Those are narcs.  They work undercover, that’s why they look the way they do.  They’re cops. Give them anything they need. Don’t recognize them when you see them in public because they may be working a case and your recognition of them could probably jeopardize their lives.  I thought, Damn that’s neat! I’m a 19 year old kid.  I wanted a little bit of that action.  First of all, I don’t like the idea of uniforms. I’ve never been a uniform person.  I wore my uniform with pride and in my opinion I look good in it.  But I never wanted to put the uniform on and make a career as a uniformed cop.  I wanted to be an undercover cop, blending in with the public, looking like a black militant or a long-haired hippie yet having a gun on my hip, a badge in my wallet and able to enforce the law.  To me, that was the neatest thing in the world.  It was also challenging. Police work is very routine.  You get a complaint about a dog barking, you go to the people and tell them to shut their dog’s barking. And you go on to the next thing.  What challenge is there in stuff like that?  I wanted something that would challenge me. And going into a situation and pretending to be something you’re not and your only true weapon is your ability to talk and work your way out of it.  Not only in it, but out of it. Because everybody carries guns and the fact that you carry one is not that important. I liked the challenge of going into those environments and being someone I wasn’t. And being successful and completing it. That’s where I wanted to go from the very beginning.

  

Q: The movie has Adam Driver’s cop impersonate Ron Stallworth when he meets the Klan face to face.  Two things: Your voice when you were on the phone speaking to Klansmen, did you alter it?

RS: No. I have read where reporters have said, ‘He spoke to the Klan in his white voice.’ When I read those reports it pisses me off.  ‘Cuz there was no attempt to disguise my voice. I talked to these guys on the phone just like I’m talking to you. Because when you’re undercover you try to stay as true to your identity as you are. You know who you are and you know how you normally function. If you try to put on a pretense, such as assuming a fake voice, you have to put on that fake voice ALL OF THE TIME. And you can’t afford to slip out of it. It’s too dangerous. So you talk to them just normally in your regular manner. When I would get on the phone I would simply say, ‘Hi, this is Ron Stallworth. Let me talk to the Grand Wizard’  -- or whatever the case may be. But never, ever did I attempt to disguise my voice. 

Q: And the guy who went to the Klan meetings as ‘Ron’ – did he do something to his voice to sound like you?

RS: Same principle. You can’t play with things like that working undercover.  You stay as true to who you are as possible. He did the same thing – and that’s why this investigation was so hilariously funny.  Because it never should have been successful. They should have recognized from the very beginning that the Ron Stallworth on the phone – that voice is totally different from the Ron Stallworth they’re having meetings with.  Chuck, the officer I describe in the book, who played me, Chuck’s voice is very distinctively different than mine.  A deaf person could tell that! These guys didn’t figure it out. Only once was I challenged. I went to a meeting – and this is depicted in the movie.  Chuck went to the meeting that I had set up and then I called, pretending to be the person who had been at that meeting because I wanted to follow up on something.  I called and immediately Ken O’Dell, the local organizer, he said, ‘What’s wrong with your voice?’  So I said [Stallworth coughs twice, assumes a lighter husky voice], ‘I have a sinus infection.’  He said, ‘I get those all the time. Here’s what you need to do.’ He prescribed a remedy for me.

Q: And that’s as far as it ever went?

RS: That’s as far as it ever went in terms of challenging my voice. 

Q: What about your life since you’ve published this book?  You’ve been anonymous your whole life and now you’re 65 years old – congratulations! – and you’re a celebrity.  The original book has been out, what, 4 or 5 years?

RS: The original book was published in 2014. The revised, edited edition came out June 5th by Flatiron Books. I don’t consider myself a celebrity. I’m still the same kid from El Paso, Texas, that I’ve always been. I’ve been blessed with some good fortune as a result of writing this book.  I understand my reality has changed a little bit. I have relatives and friends coming out of the woodwork that I’ve never HEARD OF before!  I have people who think I’m a millionaire – and I’m far from that.  I’m not even remotely close to that.   But they think I’m a millionaire now because I have a book out and a movie’s been made and the money’s just rolling into me. When I tell them that that’s not true, they don’t believe me.  I have people calling me up, messaging me, just to say ‘Thank you for what you did. We appreciate the service you did.’ That I find fascinating, that people would take the time to do that. I got one of those messages last night.  So my reality has changed but I don’t see myself as a celebrity.  I ‘met’ John David on the phone – he called me up to talk to me a few weeks before I flew to Brooklyn for the cast reading.  He called me up to talk to me and I still have his message on my phone because he essentially said, ‘I’m a little intimidated Mr. Stallworth. I’m going to play you and I want to capture your story, your “essence.”’ He said, ‘Wow! I am so intimidated, this is real scary.’ When we met he said, ‘Sir, it’s such an honor to meet you,’ and I said, ‘No, the honor is mine. You’re the celebrity. I should be intimidated to talk to you.’

Q:  Has anybody threatened you? Has anybody said, ‘I’m from the Klan. You’re a dirty dog and humiliated us and we’re going to get even’?

RS:  Not yet! I fully expect at some point in time will come across. But that’s par for the course. You deal with that as an undercover cop. I’ve been threatened before. When I was working narcotics I got threatened on several occasions.  Once in a courtroom testifying at a trial.  I’m accustomed to have people make threats against me. I fully expect at some point in time one of these white supremacists will say something. They can say anything they want just don’t try to mess with my wife.

Q: So you’ve remarried.

RS:  I have. Been married a little over a year now. 

Q: Is that the first time since your wife died?

RS:  Yes, it’s my second marriage.

Q:  And children?

RS: I have two sons by my first wife, 32 and 28.  They’ve known about my work all along. They knew about this story 8 years ago. They’re very excited about the movie coming out and I said, ‘Recognize that it’s your name coming out of the screen. Run with it! Have fun with it. Tell your friends that’s your dad and if it helps your status with your friends, enjoy it.’ 

Q: Are either of them in law enforcement?

RS: No.

Aussie Aboriginal Series: MYSTERY ROAD

Anyone who was first introduced to Judy Davis in her mesmerizing, galvanizing film debut, the 1979 Australian hit MY BRILLIANT CAREER, should not miss the Aboriginal Aussie series MYSTERY ROAD.  This is a chance to see one of the globe’s greatest English-speaking actors in a truly unexpected role.   Davis was last seen as viperous gossip monarch Hedda Hopper, needling Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in Ryan Murphy’s FEUD. In MYSTERY ROAD, which premieres on AcornTV Monday August 20 with its six episodes, Davis is local cop Emma James in dusty one-horse town Patterson where there are many sheep and cattle and little else. This contemporary drama with its Western setting is hardly where anyone might expect to find Davis who nevertheless gives Emma a solidity, common sense and irritability without a trace of campy theatrics. Emma we discover is to the manor born; her equally wealthy brother runs an enormous sheep and cattle station.  When two local boys go missing, the search that is the series’ motor begins. One is a local hero who has disappeared, an aboriginal soccer star. The other, a white drifter recently arrived from who knows where, might have been his mate or his lover. Or drug dealers. Emma is forced to partner with detective Jay Swan (Aaron Pederson) on a twisty road of discovery, which too often is set in the local bar with ever present mugs of beer.  Swan, a solid, almost monumental aboriginal presence, defines ‘speak softly, carry a big stick.’ His ex-wife shows up, looking for their daughter -- who isn’t missing for long but sees MYSTERY ROAD become a domestic drama with gender a telling factor in what has and what will happen to the many characters including a just paroled pedophile rapist. Meanwhile Davis struts, rolls her eyes and commands everyone’s attention with her insistence on pursuing the truth, wherever it may lead.  The scenery, picturesque but so dry you’ll want to grab one of those mugs, looms mightily as its own character.

 

NEW DVDs:

Action and attitude are the hallmarks of STRIKE BACK SEASON FIVE (Blu-ray + Digital, Home Box Office, Unrated). Yes, SEASON FIVE boasts a new troupe of terrorist-busting  commandos engaged in derring do in North Korea. The Cinemax series works as an update on weekly serials with its continuing storyline that usually ends each episode with a cliffhanger.  STRIKE BACK’s rightly won fans who find its mix of bravery, courage, camaraderie and patriotism irresistible.  Here is CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, CRAZY RICH ASIANS’ legendary Michelle Yeoh, England’s Robson Green (GRANTCHESTER) and the two stars bearded Sullivan Stapleton and square jawed Philip Winchester.

Inspired by the death of a classmate, an Iowa high school’s girls volleyball team captain, THE MIRACLE SEASON (DVD, 20th Century Fox Entertainment, PG) handles tragedy, trauma and regeneration sensitively.  As Iowa City West High returns for a new year, having won the state women’s volleyball championship the previous year, they are devastated when their best and most loved player Caroline ‘Line’ Found (Danika Yarosh) dies in a road accident.  From the title you know going in, that despite a bad start the kids will rally for Line and follow their motto inspired by Caroline’s optimistic, outgoing attitude: ‘Live Like Line.’ Helen Hunt and William Hurt are on hand to give gravitas amid a cast of unknowns. Hunt, who looks wonderful simply because she looks perfectly normal (no weird cosmetic procedures or Botox), is fine as the understanding coach who knows she can’t push her hurting players too much or too soon. Hurt is the anguished father who loses his wife to cancer soon after his daughter’s funeral.  School sports tragedies ironically make for ideal drama – to be so young with so much hope for the future and have it brutally crushed, ended.  And then to rise up as the team channels its sorrow into a positive force and beats the odds to win. A more stirring, similarly themed film is the 2006 WE ARE MARSHALL about the W. Virginia football team wiped out in a 1970 plane crash and subsequent efforts in ’71 to field a team. 

William Witney fans rejoice!  Here in an excellent print is Witney’s 1956 A STRANGE ADVENTURE (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated). Set in a snowy hideaway where the good guys are held hostage by ruthless gangsters ADVENTURE is a mix of hotrod teen drama, classic film noir and old fashioned melodrama.  The Republic Pictures production boasts a transparent femme fatale in Liz Taylor lookalike Marla English, first-rate sociopathic villainy from typecast Jan Merlin and Nick Adams, who was in the previous year’s REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE with his good buddy James Dean. Here he’s an asthmatic crook.  Toby Roan and Jay Dee Witney offer an informative audio commentary. 

You won’t get a better look at Sixties’ Swinging London than the satirical SMASHING TIME (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Unrated).  This 1967 romp teamed two Bright British Lights – Lynn Redgrave, from the acting dynasty who had won fame as GEORGY GIRL (’66), and Rita Tushingham, the sparrow-like Liverpudlian star of the seminal British working class, kitchen sink dramatic trio, A TASTE OF HONEY, THE LEATHER BOYS and GIRL WITH GREEN EYES.  Thanks to film historian Kat Elinger’s brightly informed audio commentary, SMASHING TIME’s connection to what came before and its suggestion of where Britain was headed becomes clear.  A flop when first released, it’s wonderful mix of slapstick – just seeing the two stars side by side with Redgrave towering a head taller than Tushingham is a visual gag – satire and wish fulfillment plotting as the two lower class mates become celebrated and famous.  On hand, Michael York (Bob Fosse’s Oscar-winning CABARET was in his future).

Tim Robbins devoted himself to live, no-budget, avant garde theater as soon as he graduated from UCLA and CRADLE WILL ROCK (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, R), a 1999 film revolving around a landmark 1930s agitprop play, reflects that.  As director-actor Robbins is best known for acting in THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, BULL DURHAM and MYSTIC RIVER and writing and directing the anti-capital punishment drama DEAD MAN WALKING that won his longtime companion Susan Sarandon her Best Actress Academy Award. CRADLE, blessed with Robbins’ audio commentary, is set in New York during the Depression and highlights Orson Welles’ efforts to present his legendary stage production THE CRADLE WILL ROCK uncensored.  Here too is Nelson Rockefeller commissioning Mexico’s proudly anti-capitalist Communist artist Diego Rivera to create Rockefeller Center lobby murals (they’re still there!) which he … censored!  The extraordinary cast includes Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Sarandon, Hank Azaria, John Cusack, Jack Black, Paul Giamatti and Ruben Blades.

          Trump Admin’s Push for Coal, Nuke Bailout Reflected in Key Staff Positions at Federal Agencies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In June, the Trump administration announced its plans to protect coal and nuclear power plants from closure — including the possibility of a leaked plan to use wartime emergency powers to force grid operators and utilities to buy power from uneconomic plants, at a potential price tag of tens of billions of dollars for American consumers. 

Since then, the administration has gone officially silent on its plans. But this week saw some important new information emerge indicating how it is using political influence to direct the outcome of work being done at key agencies involved in the bailout plan, specifically the Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. 

First up is FERC, the independent regulatory agency that oversees interstate electricity and fuel transmission. On Wednesday, Politico reported that the Trump administration is planning to nominate Bernard McNamee, one of the chief architects of DOE’s failed plan to bolster coal and nuclear power plants as emergency assets, to replace outgoing commissioner Ron Powelson. 

McNamee, an attorney and long-time advocate of deregulation who’s worked for the attorneys general of Texas and Virginia and for Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), was first appointed to DOE as deputy general counsel for energy policy last year. That’s when he participated in Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s proposal for FERC to use its authority to create out-of-market payments for power plants with at least 90 days of fuel on site — a plan influenced by Perry’s association with coal company CEO and owner Robert Murray, an outspoken financial supporter of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. 

In January, FERC commissioners unanimously rejected that plan, leading to DOE’s current push to find its own authority to order the same outcome. McNamee left the agency to work for the conservative Texas Public Policy Foundation (TPPF), only to be named head of DOE’s Office of Policy in May. According to Politico’s three sources, McNamee’s support for coal and nuclear bailouts in the past is seen as helping him pass a key “litmus test” for any new FERC nominee. 

Forcing utilities to buy power from uneconomic power plants likely to be picked under the plan would raise costs on U.S. consumers by billions of dollars per year. Preliminary estimates range from the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity’s projection of about $4 billion per year, to The Brattle Group’s estimate of between $9.7 billion and $17.2 billion per year.

The Sierra Club viewed McNamee’s consideration for FERC as an attempt to “install a crony at FERC who will unfairly tip the scales in favor of propping up those failing industries. It’s outrageous that someone so clearly biased, who has championed an expensive and unnecessary bailout for millionaire Trump supporters, is even being considered as a commissioner to this independent agency.” 

Attention wasn’t just focused on FERC’s commission this week, though. On Wednesday, reports emerged that FERC Chief of Staff Anthony Pugliese is directing FERC staff to identify power plants to be deemed critical for keeping power supplied to military bases, hospitals or other key sites during grid emergencies. 

According to reports from E&E News based on a recording of Pugliese’s comments to a nuclear trade group last week, FERC is “working with [the Department of Defense] and DOE and [the National Security Council] to identify the plants that we think would be absolutely critical to ensuring that not only our military bases, but things like hospitals and other critical infrastructure, are able to be maintained, regardless of what natural or manmade disasters might occur.” 

This research would appear to align with DOE’s plan to use its wartime powers under the Defense Production Act to declare certain “Subject Generation Facilities" as critical to national security, and then force grid operators and utilities to buy their power. 

All five FERC commissioners — four of them appointed by Trump — told Congress in June that they do not believe a grid emergency exists to justify such an extreme action.

But according to E&E News, Pugliese told the American Nuclear Society that FERC is actively looking for ways to "value resilience" and “ensure that some of these critical assets like these nuclear plants do not go the way of the dodo bird.” 

Pugliese, appointed as chief of staff by then-FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee in August 2017, lacks the legal and energy industry background common to most who have filled that position over the past several administrations. He previously served as Senior White House Advisor for the U.S. Department of Transportation, and before that worked as a consultant at his father's lobbying firm, Pugliese Associates, and as director of legislative affairs for former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, a Republican.  

In phrasing considered unusual for the chief of staff of an independent agency, Pugliese was also reported as saying that “we, as in the administration, the White House and the FERC,” are working with Congress “to consider what legislative changes may need to take place to ensure that we have the ability and the authority” to expand FERC’s ability to direct state energy policies. 

This comment comes as FERC is facing intense scrutiny over its potential role in any DOE emergency declaration for power plants. FERC is also facing backlash from stakeholders including state regulators, power producers and environmental and consumer groups to reconsider its 3-2 decision in July to order mid-Atlantic grid operator PJM to rebuild its capacity market in ways that could limit participation by both nuclear and renewable energy backed by state policies. 

On Thursday, E&E reporter Sam Mintz tweeted a response from FERC that read, "The Chief of Staff is simply stating that the federal government is working to ensure that important critical infrastructure, such as hospitals, remains operations. FERC is an independent agency and therefore has not assisted in the development of policy but provides technical assistance as subject matter experts."

Finally, a Sierra Club Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit has unveiled emails that show Trump-appointed DOE officials pushed to highlight coal’s importance — and natural gas’ failings — in a report on the electricity system’s performance during last winter’s “bomb cyclone" snow event. That report from the National Energy Technology Laboratory has been cited as support for supporting struggling coal power plants in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the U.S. 

According to Bloomberg, the emails and other correspondence indicate that Office of Advanced Fossil Technology Director Angelos Kokkinos, a Trump appointee who formerly served as chief financial officer for energy systems manufacturer Babcock Power, asked staff to highlight certain points “we need to make” in the report, including data that showed 55 percent of total outages during that storm were tethered to natural gas while just 26 percent were tied to coal plants.

But according to the Union of Concerned Scientists, the National Energy Technology Laboratory report also uses “bogus metrics” to show that coal is more valuable than natural gas for grid resilience. These include citing the fact that expensive coal-fired power was called on during the bomb cyclone’s energy spikes as evidence that they’re needed for grid resiliency, rather than noting the fact that their power is too expensive to clear markets at other times. 

Casey Johnson, Sierra Club senior attorney, noted that the NETL report was also completed in January, but wasn’t released until the last week of March. That was two days before FirstEnergy, the Ohio-based utility that’s likely to benefit greatly from the Trump administration’s plans, filed its request for emergency relief under Section 202(c) of the Federal Power Act  — and two weeks before FirstEnergy filed for bankruptcy protection for its struggling coal and nuclear power business. 

“The way that report was done seemed to find these unsubstantiated conclusions that were pretty widely dismissed as an analytical approach,” Johnson said. On Monday, the Sierra Club and the Environmental Defense Fund filed FOIA lawsuits demanding the DOE turn over more documents related to the NETL report, as well as DOE documents and correspondence between DOE and FirstEnergy officials regarding the plan to use Section 202(c) authority to keep power plants open. 

“We’re concerned that the department is going to use its emergency authorities in unprecedented ways to reward their political allies,” said Johnson. “We’ve requested internal communications about how the department is going about its work. […] Are they talking to each other about these requests from industry? Are they trying to manufacture justifications to respond to those requests? Are they talking to authorities on grid reliability — or are they just talking to the coal industry?” 


          US Renewables Are Closing In on Nuclear Generation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Nuclear power’s tenure as the leading source of zero-carbon electricity may be coming to an end.

After decades of stalled nuclear plant development and the recent surge of increasingly cheap wind and solar deployments, the newcomers are pulling ahead. In the first five months of 2018, renewables produced 20.17 percent of U.S. electricity and nuclear produced 20.14 percent, according to Energy Information Administration data compiled by Ken Bossong of the Sun Day Campaign.

A similar record was hit in the first three months of 2017.

In the two most recent months included in the data set, April and May, renewables outproduced nuclear by more than 10 percent. 

To be fair, the renewables category here encompasses wind, hydropower, large- and small-scale solar, geothermal and biomass. Nuclear still more than doubles the generation of the second-largest single clean energy source, hydropower.

That said, the data offers a snapshot of how the mix of clean energy is shifting. Renewables out-generate nuclear in more than half of states, according to an analysis of EIA data by the Sun Day Campaign.

Sun Day has a very clear stake in this race: Its mission is to promote sustainable energy and help “phase out the use of nuclear power.”

The nonprofit is not alone among advocates who want clean energy, but want to end the top source of zero-carbon power. Environmental groups have long taken aim at the radioactive waste and perceived risks of nuclear power plants, and they often play a key role in working out the deals that arrange for plant retirements.

The baseload nature of nuclear plants — providing massive amounts of electricity around the clock — contrasts with the intermittent production of wind and solar. Nuclear is also considered more readily dispatchable than are wind and solar. Hence the intense interest in energy storage to balance out renewable generation throughout the days and seasons.

The key question for decarbonization is which other power sources are eating up nuclear’s market share.

Sun Day’s messaging lumps nuclear plants in with coal plants as outdated and “environmentally polluting” power sources. If coal retires, it will be replaced by less polluting sources. Unlike coal, if nuclear retirements get replaced by natural gas, greenhouse gas emissions go up. 

Natural gas remains the go-to flexible capacity source for the grid; big batteries have begun to play that role in only a few locations so far.

The renewable sector can cheer its growing prominence, but ending nuclear will just make it harder to decarbonize with wind and solar.

          THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA - Jam Session!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Die Gitarristen David Andersson und Sebastian Forslund der schwedischen Classic/Progressive Rock-Supergroup THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA haben ein Proberaumvideo veröffentlicht, in dem sie den kurzerhand 'Race Towards Bremen On A Floridian Highway' getauften neuen Track improvisiert. Andersson dazu: "Me and Sebastian had planned to meet in his studio to do a play through of one our new songs for my endorser, ESP guitars. But when we got there it felt quite boring to just mime along to a pre-recorded track, pretending to be excited about it. And it doesn't really represent the spirit of THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA. So, knowing that Sebastian is a one man band all in himself, we thought it would be much more fun to improvise a new track live in the studio instead, with us doing everything ourselves in real time. 'Race Towards Bremen on a Floridian Highway' is a tribute to all the 80's soundtracks we grew up with, and the unknown always growing inside us."

          Danny Blue: The Life of a Mentalist in Danger      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Do you know, I was just watching a Real News video where a professor was saying that we are now closer to a nuclear catastrophic than ever before and I was sizing it up for MNE's when I got depressed. We read here all the time about the evil side of human nature and it can get hard at times, so I thought, how can I cheer myself up a bit and maybe find something different for MNE's, and then I thought of Danny blue, a mentalist. I watched a number of his videos a few years back and I was pretty impressed I will have to say, and considering his immense talent, I was also impressed by his modesty. Anyway, this video is jaw dropping although very slow to start because of getting things set up. If it interest you but you find it too slow then go to 6 minutes. How he got away with this stunt I will never know?  The drivers have no idea which box Danny Blue is behind.

Russian Fleet Rushes To Arctic Over Fears US May Have Started War With Unknown Alien Species
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
At the same time the highly influential Veteran Intelligent Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) organization is warning President Trump that the “Deep State” intelligence on Iran he is receiving could be catastrophic, a new Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today suggests that the United States, if not the entire world, may have even bigger things to worry about—and is due to a believed to be shootdown by the US Air Force of a known and accepted “interstellar-interdimensional device” (most commonly referred as a UFO) within the Arctic Circle on 25 July, whose explosive force was registered at 2.1 kilotons—and has now seen this “devices” suspected “pair-mate”, on 4 Augustenter our Earth’s atmosphere in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region-Yugra in West Siberia from where it began transversing the globe—until yesterday, 7 August,when it hovered in the skies over the Philippines, then raced towards the Arctic Circle where it plunged into the Greenland Sea with enough force to cause a 5.8 magnitude earthquake—and in response to President Putin, just hours ago, ordered the immediate deployment of the entire Russian Northern Fleet to Arctic waters.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Massive “interstellar-interdimensinal” device (above) makes rare appearance over Philippines before racing to, and then plunging into, the Greenland Sea on 7 August 2018

According to this report, throughout the entirety of recorded human history, one of our planet’s most enduring mysteries has been the sudden and unexplained appearance of massive “interstellar-interdimensional” devices in our skies—and who, in the concealing of their presence, use unknown technology to envelope themselves in massive cloud formations—so gigantic, in fact, the late American physicist William Corliss Ph.D., in his 1983 scientific research paper titled “Tornadoes, Dark Days, Anomalous Precipitation, and Related Weather Phenomena”, documented them being able to cover entire regions, resulting in what he called “Dark Days”, as the Sunwould be completely obliterated from the sky.
One of the most written about “Dark Days” associated with these “interstellar-interdimensinal” devices in near historic times, this report details, occurred on 19 May 1780 throughout the entire region of the United Statesknown as New England—and where, shortly before Noon on that day, the sky turned yellowish, then went completely black.  


Shortly before Noon, on Friday, 20 July 2018, this report notes, another of these “Dark Days” occurred that covered the entire Eveno-Bytantaisky and Zhigansky districts of Russia’s coldest region Yakutia—and whose residents of refused to accept official explanations, with many of them stating it was, indeed, caused by what they called a massive UFO.
Though not having the technology to fully track these “interstellar-interdimensional” devices when they enter our Earth’s atmosphere, this report says, this particular “Dark Day” cause, five days later, on 25 July, was determined by the MoD to be operating within the Arctic Circle—with it then being observed that a missile had fired by the US Air Force from their Arctic Circle air base, and that was immediately followed with the registering of a 2.1 kiloton explosion—but that the Americans claimed was due to a crashed meteorite.   

US Air Force fighter pilots admit their being ordered to fire on UFO’s

Near simultaneously with this 2.1 kiloton explosion occurring in the Arctic, this report continues, and also on 25 July, the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) sent out an urgent astrogram (astronomer’s telegram) notifying the world that they had just detected a mysterious fast radio burst (FRB) they designated FRB 180725—and whose frequency of 580 MHz is nearly 200 megahertz lower than any other radio burst ever detected in history.
MoD analysts, this report concludes, have formed a hypothesis that this mysterious never seen before FRB was directed to the “interstellar-interdimensional” device fired on by the US Air Force—and that caused its “pair mate” device to come to its rescue as it may be lying disabled on the seafloor within the Arctic Circle—but whose full consequences of, should the worst have happened, and the Americans, indeed, fired upon an alien craft, are contained in the most highly classified section of this MoD report we’re not allowed to mention—other then to note its containing the full details of the most infamous “Dark Day” event occurring in recorded human history on 14 April 1561—and was when the inhabitants of the German city of Nuremberg witnessed a massive aerial battle involving hundreds of UFO’s in the skies above them—but whose cause of has never been known.

WHEN RON PAUL GETS SERIOUSLY CENSORED, YOU KNOW THE FALSE FLAGS ARE ON THE DRAWING BOARD... BIGTIME... 

‘TRUTH IS TREASON IN EMPIRE OF LIES’: RON PAUL ON BIG TECH CENSORSHIP

“Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

‘Truth is treason in empire of lies’: Ron Paul on Big Tech censorship


After the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute got suspended on Twitter, the former congressman from Texas told RT that social media crackdowns are part of a broader effort to silence dissent in the US.
While social media could be a “real delight” and very informative, the biggest role social networks are playing is “working with the government,” Ron Paul told RT on Tuesday. The government is indirectly regulating speech through companies like Twitter and Facebook, he added.
“You get accused of treasonous activity and treasonous speech because in an empire of lies the truth is treason,” Paul said. “Challenging the status quo is what they can’t stand and it unnerves them, so they have to silence people.”

Paul served in the House of Representatives for over 25 years before retiring in 2013 and setting up the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity. The institute’s executive director, Daniel McAdams, found himself suspended from Twitter on Monday, apparently for retweeting a comment by radio show host Scott Horton.
Horton, who is also the editorial director of Antiwar.com, was suspended for criticizing journalist Jonathan M. Katz, after Katz complained to Twitter and got former former State Department employee and author Peter Van Buren banned from the platform.
“I’m just hoping that technology can stay ahead of it all and that we can have real alternatives to the dependency on Twitter and other companies that have been working hand in glove with the government,”Paul told RT.
“And if we, some of us, tell the truth about our government, they call us treasonous and say we’re speaking out of line and they’d like to punish us, and I think that’s part of what’s happening with social media,” he added.

As Globalists And Big Tech 'Identify, Vilify, Nullify And Destroy', Totalitarian Attempts To Ban The 1st Amendment Could Lead To Rivers Of Blood Flowing Through The Streets Of America

support_the_2nd.jpg

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die

With 'big tech' and the globalists having launched an all-out war upon the 1st Amendment with Alex Jones and Infowars clearly the 'canary in the coal mine' of tyranny, Steve Quayle recently warned while linking to this story over at Intellihub about the fiasco: "when there is no 'alt news', murder and death will rule the day". 


With Senate Democrats now actually floating plans that would see the US government taking over the internet according to a leaked memo circulating among them that details a plethora of authoritarian proposals for regulating digital platforms such as Infowars and ANP, allegedly to "get tough on Russian bots and fake news", the fact that one Democratic senator recently said "the survival of our democracy depends on banning sites like InfoWars" tells us everything that we need to know going forward in 2018. (REMINDER TO CONGRESS: Your job approval rating SUCKS at 18%!)

As Quayle also mentioned while linking to this story over at Zero Hedge which reports that the censorship crackdown continues with twitter suspending several accounts of prominent libertarians, including the account of the Director of the Ron Paul Institute, "the first victim in any war is truth - 'propaganda is the execution squad' to all truth - the full-scale NWO pogrom begins!

Trump Taunts “Deep State” Daring Them To Assassinate Him As Historic US-Russia Alliance To Save World Gains Speed
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers
An astonishing historically centered new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that 48-hours after a suspected to be CIA assassination plot failed to kill their nations leader in Wilkes-BarrePennsylvania, an appearing to be fearless President Donald Trump appeared openly again before a cheering crowd of his supporters in Lewis CenterOhio where he actually taunted his “Deep State” demonic anti-Christ globalist enemies daring them to try to assassinate him again—and that he did so by his unmistakably declaring his allegiance to the 25th President of the United States William McKinley—and afterwards Trump’s allegiance to McKinley spreading like wildfire across the globe spurring comments like “Did you pick it up? CONFIRMED!  The Trump US government will begin to fund itself by everything else EXCEPT INCOME TAXES.  That's the future economic plan and I'm so jealous I'm not an American!!!”—with the true significant origins of what Trump is doing being able to be traced back to “The Two Liberators”, Tsar Alexander II and President Abraham Lincoln.  [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

          THE MURDER OF MARY MEYER      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On a chilly October 12, 1964 Monday morning, Mary Pinchot Meyer, a high-society socialite, (and also discovered paramour of the late assassinated President John F. Kennedy) became an assassination victim herself during her customary early morning walk to her art studio. 

Click here to enlarge top photo.

Author Peter Janney knew the Meyer family personally, as Janney’s father, Wistar Janney, was a career CIA operative and close friends with CIA chieftains Richard Helms, James Angleton, and Cord Meyer (Mary’s husband).  

“There was nothing pretty or easy about waking up early one morning in 2006 and finally realizing that my own father---Wistar Janney, a career high-level CIA officer---had been involved in the ‘termination’ of Mary Pinchot Meyer, someone I had grown to love and care about,” says Peter Janney.  “Yet there is another horror in the death of Mary Meyer, a horror that reaches far beyond the personal.  It is the intimate and undeniable connection between her murder and that of her lover, President John F. Kennedy, on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, Texas.”

Janney begins an excursion through the arrest and trial of a young twenty-five-year-old Raymond Crump, Jr., the accused murderer of Mary Meyer.  Under the skillful counsel of defense attorney Dovey Roundtree, Crump’s attorney was able to disintegrate the accusations and charges brought against her client.  Despite prosecution’s determined “declaration of war” on Ray Crump, Roundtree meticulously dodged and rebuffed the prosecution’s manipulations of justice.  On Friday, July 30, 1965, the jury found Raymond Crump, Jr., not guilty of the murder of Mary Pinchot Meyer.  Yet, Roundtree had discovered a deeper mystery in the forensic history.

Janney explains: “Dovey Roundtree never abandoned her belief that Ray had been a scapegoat, a ‘patsy,’ who had been set up to take the fall. ‘So far as I am concerned,’ wrote Roundtree in 2009, ‘there is in the complex and tangled web of certain truth and unconfirmed rumor, of the inference and speculation and intrigue that surrounds the life and death of Mary Pinchot Meyer a single critical fact: Raymond Crump’s innocence in her murder.’”

Joseph W. Shimon floated in the highest of government circles.  He was a special White House Aide, Washington Police Inspector, liaison to the CIA, U.S Attorney’s office, U.S Secret Service, the Mob, and an official assassin:

“People are eliminated,” said Shimon to his daughter in the spring of 1965.  “Honey, you don’t know how many people are just eliminated, just on the operating table alone.  They just need to be disposed of.   And don’t ever believe what you read in the newspapers. It’s all made up…among my many jobs, I used to kill people.  The government hired me to kill people. It’s a job…you have to, if that’s what you’re told to do.”  (Shimon, interviewed by Peter Janney, February 15, 2007.)   


Roundtree further pondered the mysterious phone calls she received, the disappearance of a stalled Nash Rambler and an accompanying “repair order,” as well as the mention of “Mary’s diary having been sequestered by the CIA all these years,” linking Mary’s affair with the assassinated president.   

“Who, then, was the man that Henry Wiggins had seen standing over Mary’s corpse less than fifteen seconds after the fatal second shot was fired?” asks Janney.  “His pristine, unstained clothes appeared to match the clothes worn by Ray Crump that morning.”

NEW LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING

Janney says that achieving a “new level of understanding in the case” would include a look at “a number of heretofore unseen details, events, experiences, and people.”  (p. 144.)

Author Peter Janney

“Another author, Leo Damore, met with Janney in 1992 while working on his own Meyer project.  Damore had written a bestseller about Senator Edward Kennedy and Chappaquiddick, and he was hot on the trail of Meyer’s killer, or so he confided to Janney.  Damore never finished his book, however.  In 1995 he committed suicide.  Years later, Janney bought Damore’s research files, using them as the basis for ‘Mary’s Mosaic.’

“James H. Smith, a Falmouth lawyer, was among those encouraging Janney to keep digging.  Smith worked for the Kennedy family years ago and knew Damore well. Now 82, he never believed the Warren Commission’s version of JFK’s murder, says Smith today, and finds nothing outlandish in Janney’s the-CIA-did-it scenario.

‘I think Peter’s hit a home run,’ Smith said.’”

https://www.bostonglobe.com/2012/05/25/janney/St45JbWsY5VXTVbPKzAG7M/story.html.

 

Mary had several suitors before her death.  One such admirer was Robert (“Bob”) L. Schwartz who was a young naval officer and a journalist who came to know Mary as a very idealistic woman and a pacifist, but ultimately called her “a prima ballerina assoluta.”  “She was what women were meant to be,” said Schwartz.

Cord Meyer, “a charismatic war veteran,” Yale graduate, congressman, dated and eventually married Mary Pinchot.  Cord decided to work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the Directorate of Plans in 1951, “the CIA’s most secretarial division dedicated to the manipulation of world order.”

Janney says:  “Somewhere in the bowels of the Washington E Street offices of the newly formed CIA, Cord Meyer transformed all his poetic, insightful visionary wisdom into perfecting schemes and strategies for America’s greater power and control, the often subtle but effective attempts at world domination---no matter what the cost.”

Mary felt a disdain for the CIA and its “mission.”  Janney quotes an anonymous source:  “Mary absolutely detested Allen Dulles and everything he stood for.  She compared him to Machiavelli, only worse.”  (p. 184.)

Cord and Mary grew apart, possibly due to Cord’s alcoholism, possibly due to Cord’s obsessive life in the CIA, but also due to Mary’s affair with (in his appearance only) “Italian noble” Jean Pierre.  The Meyers were divorced.  Shortly following these events, Michael Pinchot Meyer (the son) was hit and killed by an automobile driver.  During these sordid circumstances, Cord  became director of the CIA’s black project: Operation Mockingbird.

“Having infiltrated more than twenty-five newspapers and wire agencies, Operation Mockingbird had successfully manipulated the American media to promote the CIA viewpoint…an estimated three thousand salaried and contract CIA employees were engaged in propaganda efforts.”

October 12, 1964 - Mary Pinchot Meyer is murdered in broad daylight on the C & O Canal towpath in Georgetown, three weeks after the release of the Warren Report.

The CIA did not take kindly to an expose’ of their media control operation in Ramparts Magazine.  “CIA operative Edgar Applewhite was ordered to operate a campaign to smear the publication and then tender it financially bankrupt,” says Janney.  (p. 192.) 

Further CIA conquests included the CIA surveillance of Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia.  The book revealed that American intelligence had collaborated with the drug trade dating back as far as World War II.  CIA involvement extended about the globe resulting in the “death squads” in Central America (p. 195).  Janney talks about a “CIA-led assassination campaign throughout Southeast Asia, Operation Phoenix, (which) made matters even worse.”

THE LSD PARLANCE

http://i.ytimg.com/vi/E1GySrriCpg/hqdefault.jpg.

Mary’s friends Anne and Jim Truitt began an interest in psychedelic states of consciousness and, according to Jim Truitt, Mary first experimented with psychedelics in 1958, but Janney says a legendary Alfred M. Hubbard (a former World War II OSS agents, uranium entrepreneur) “first introduced her to such exploration.”  Dr. Oscar Janiger, a Los Angeles Psychiatrist, was also a member to Hubbard’s visits.  Hubbard was very distrustful of the CIA’s exploration of LSD.  “The CIA work stinks,” said Hubbard, “they were misusing it…when they were killing people, you couldn’t tell them a goddamn thing.”

Janney says:  “In addition to the CIA, the U.S Army, and Britain’s M16 all had a keen interest in using LSD and other hallucinogens for chemical warfare, in what they hoped would be ‘mind control.’”  In one incident, in 1951, the CIA’s Fort Detrick, Maryland had used a crop-duster airplane to cover the town of Pont-Saint-Esprit in Southern France with an aerosol of LSD.  “Four people committed suicide before the trauma subsided.”

Frank Olson, a CIA chemical warfare expert, became, in the eyes of his peers, a “security risk” and was supposedly thrown out of his tenth-floor hotel window.  It was in his world of high-society intrigue, that Mary’s drug interest expanded.

It was suspected that Mary visited Timothy Leary, the LSD guru, during the early 1960s.  That interest would become entwined with her friendship with Jack Kennedy. 

JACK KENNEDY AND MARY MEYER     

Mary became Friends with her neighbor Jack Kennedy starting somewhere about 1957.  Over a number of years, that friendship turned into a closer attraction.

“Mary’s primary attraction for Jack may have ultimately been trust---in the end,” says Janney, “love’s most powerful aphrodisiac."

Richard Helms: The man who kept the JFK secrets

Mary contacted Doctor Timothy Leary about his research and connection to the Harvard Psilocybin Project.  “Leary depicted Mary Meyer,” says Janney, “as a kind of missionary for the ascension of world peace through the sagacious use of hallucinogens…an opportune mind-altering experience in the lives of powerful political figures, specifically the leader of the free world…”

Leary’s harassment by the government and his eventual arrest and imprisonment only temporarily stifled his investigation of the murder of his Friend, Mary Meyer.   

“Upon his release from prison in 1976, having read the National Enquirer expose’ about Mary’s affair with Jack published earlier that year, Leary would attempt a second investigation of Mary’s murder,” says Janney, “after coming across a copy of Deborah Davis’ book Katharine the Great  at the home of his friends Jon and Carolyn Bradshaw.”

EVOLVING TRAJECTORY  

According to Janney, the Meyer-Kennedy affair began around January, 1962 and perhaps earlier. Both Meyer and the Kennedys, Jack and Bobby, had a growing distrust of Allen Dulles and his increasing exploits, including the Cuban Bay of Pigs, Operation Northwoods, and other nefarious CIA shenanigans.

“Mary’s longtime commitment to world peace, coupled with Jack’s broadening insight that peace, not armed conflict,” says Janney, “was the right path forward, inevitably made an important asset. After the Cuban Missile Crisis, the President’s evolving political trajectory would increasingly isolate him from his own National Security Apparatus.” 

During the Cuban missile crisis, both the U.S military and the CIA, says Janney, were secretly operating unilaterally doing whatever they could to intensify tensions that could ignite a war.

“But in the shadows, evil was very much alive, stalking not only the republic but the president,” says Janney.  “Not only were the Joint Chiefs of Staff enraged that Cuba had been attacked, but were also indignant that Kennedy had made concessions to Khrushchev.”    

Author and researcher Leo Damor told Janney about a confidential source who revealed that Mary and Jack Kennedy had taken “a mild LSD trip” in the summer of 1959. Following this episode, Kennedy pushed for a Nuclear Arms Treaty.

SECURITY OF THE SLAVE 

Mary Meyer and Jack Kennedy’s new found philosophy of world peace could be seen in his address at American University, dubbed his “peace speech”:  “Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war.  Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave.  I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, that kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children---not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women – not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.”

THE OSWALD SYNCHRONISM  

An assassination attempt on Jack Kennedy was planned for November 2, 1963.  The plot would entail multiple gunmen, and a designated patsy, ex-marine Thomas Arthur Vallee.  Like Oswald, Thomas Vallee had also served at a U-2 base in Japan under the Joint Technical Advisory Group (JTAG), the CIA’s code name for its U-2 spy plane surveillance unit.  Like Lee Harvey Oswald, Vallee “found work” in the fall of November, 1963 in a building next to a L-shaped turn on  the route of the Presidential motorcade.  The plot, however, was foiled.

          ALWAYS SOME ISSUE TO DEAL WITH...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I was reading a daily newspaper out of Vancouver B.C. a few weeks ago. My favourite part is the Backchat in the opinion section. Every day readers can respond to a question that is posted in the previous days paper. The editors asked to the effect that scientists think there are a few plausible ways that could kill life on Earth, which I'll give my take on some of them below. It seems this topic brings out the cynical "I've heard it all before" attitude. I don't let the cynicism get to me a lot anymore as I miss out on the humour that is involved.

One way that was suggested was an asteroid striking Planet Earth. I find this one quite feasible. With all that is moving about in space, I'm surprised that nothing big has struck the surface of the planet in thousands of years which has defied some incredible odds.

The second one was intelligent machines killing us off, a scary thought in light of what of Stephen Hawking said recently. Bearing in mind that I can't see machines being any smarter than their creators, where would these robots get a life force that keeps humans alive and kicking? Imagine the horror involved if an army of armed emotionless robots bearing down on unarmed civilians?

A plague could be it but I would question if it would be a natural occurring one that those in charge would capitalize on to get the population into fear mode big time. Or would it be a man made disease created in a control centre?

Nuclear war is a distinct possibility. Is there a psychopath out there who would think nothing of pressing a button that would destroy all life and the planet itself? What would be accomplished then? When life after humans happens how would Mother Nature deal with the nuclear facilities still in operation?

Climate change might not be a factor as much as some think. No matter what opinion one has of the human race, we can be pretty hearty at times proving the theory of adaptability has some merit to it.

The best one in humorous terms is God hitting the off switch. The one liners that could be used here is a stand up comics dream. I can see God saying; "Enough of this folks, show time is over."

Of course people will come come up with other ideas on how things will end. I don't put much stock on biblical/religious agendas or an alien angle as a lot of it is pretty far out material which could be mostly speculation or wishful thinking. As far as I'm concerned these two groups are great at making things up as they go along or working backwards from a fabricated answer they've created to fit the question they have phrased so carefully.

The answer to this question of life ending on the planet is probably right under our noses, happening as we live despite the majority ignoring it. It could happen prior to the sun turning into a supernova or fossil fuels running out and there isn't enough of anything else to replace it. There is a lot of the fear factor used by those really in charge to stifle most humans from asking tough questions to find out what exactly what the truth is.

How much of the above is going to happen is anyones guess. I believe the planet we're on won't end in the physical sense but the human race will at some point. I have concluded that whatever is running the Universe doesn't have a preference for mankind over another species, Mother Nature will reclaim the planet and other species will replace us.

Pyongyang accuses Trump administration of following ‘outdated acting script’ as denuclearisation deal shows few signs of progress

North Korea has denounced US calls for international sanctions to be enforced despite Pyongyang’s goodwill moves, saying progress on denuclearisation cannot be expected if Washington follows an “outdated acting script”.

North Korea’s foreign ministry said on Thursday that Pyongyang had stopped nuclear and missile tests, dismantled a nuclear test ground and returned the remains of US soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean war. Yet Washington was still insisting on “denuclearisation first” and had “responded to our expectation by inciting international sanctions and pressure”.

          Un cacciatore di tesori nascosti di Discovery Channel trova tracce "di un UFO sotto il Triangolo delle Bermuda"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Il cacciatore di tesori nascosti di Discovery Channel Darrell Miklos sostiene di aver trovato tracce di un'astronave extra-terrestre, mentre esplorava antichi relitti sotto il Triangolo delle Bermude. Lo riporta il Daily Mail.

L'esploratore si è servito di alcune mappe segrete del famoso astronauta della NASA, Gordon Cooper. Cooper fu il primo astronauta a viaggiare da solo, e si ritiene sia stato anche il primo americano a dormire nello spazio. Nel 1963 la sua navicella, la Faith 7, circumnavigò la Terra 22 volte, stabilendo un nuovo record di volo. Per 34 ore, senza potersi muovere, Cooper ebbe l'incarico di cercare dall'alto dei siti per un lancio nucleare, ma finì per imbattersi in un ammasso di rottami metallici in fondo all'oceano.

Darrell Miklos

Che fosse un "tesoro sommerso"? Se sì, di quale tipo di "tesoro" avrebbe potuto trattarsi? La trasmissione Cooper's Treasure condotta dallo stesso Darrell Miklos, infatti, sta tentando di verificare puntata dopo puntata se le anomalie riscontrate dall'astronauta possano davvero essere legate a un "tesoro".

Ora la rivelazione sconvolgente: durante la sua esplorazione, Miklos si è imbattuto in un enorme oggetto sommerso non identificato (USO), riguardo cui ha dichiarato che si trattava di una "formazione diversa da qualsiasi altro relitto da naufragio mai visto". La presunta navicella spaziale, infatti, era lunga quasi 100 metri (300 piedi) e presentava delle lunghe protuberanze sui lati.

Insomma, si tratterebbe di un vero e proprio mistero nel mistero. Il Triangolo delle Bermude, infatti, negli anni è stato protagonista della scomparsa di 75 aerei e di centinaia di navi. Nel tempo, sono state avanzate diverse teorie per spiegare le cause di tali catastrofi: forze paranormali, interferenze elettromagnetiche capaci di rompere le bussole, maltempo, correnti del Golfo o influenza di enormi depositi sottomarini di metano. Ma adesso a quella serie di interrogativi se ne aggiunge un altro: nei pressi delle Bermuda è finito anche un UFO?

There are two related stories to discuss today, both on the subject of Intelligence. A word which, needless to say when referring to Washington, refers to "spying" instead of anything remotely like "smartness" or "proper brain function."

Specifically, President-elect Donald Trump has made it clear that he doesn't consider US intelligence agencies to be 100% reliable, especially when it comes to their consensus accusation that Vladimir Putin interfered with our election by disguising himself with a pair of Groucho glasses, then driving a schoolbus filled with Cossacks to various polling places in key electoral states.

But before Hope n' Change dives into the details of the "Russian hacking" story, let's look at Barack Obama's recent claim of advising Trump - strictly as a professional courtesy - that as President he should always trust the US intelligence community.

"There are going to be times," the miserable stain on the Oval Office said, "where the only way you can make a good decision is if you have confidence that the process is working, and the people that you put in charge are giving you their very best assessments."

Really, Barry? Is that how you've conducted your presidency? Not according to the Hope n' Change vault...






Let's review a few fun facts. As president, B. Hussein skipped the majority of his intelligence briefings including the one immediately following the debacle in Benghazi. Barry also had nothing but foreign policy failures, and repeatedly placed the blame on his intelligence agencies.

So why should Trump - or the rest of us - invest our trust in the intelligence agencies who failed to see the rise of Isis? Who missed nuclear weapons development by Iran during our negotiations? Who were unable to connect the dots preceding Putin's many successful aggressions - as well as those of China and North Korea.

These are the intelligence agencies whose keen insights helped bring about nightmare scenarios in Syria, Libya, and pretty much every other country which has mosques. Intelligence agencies which failed to flag September 11th as a potentially meaningful day for terrorists to attack in Benghazi.

Intelligence agencies which, at least according to the administration, found it "no big deal" that Hillary (as freaking Secretary of State) put all of our national secrets on an unguarded personal server just so she could dodge future Freedom of Information Act demands to see documents rightfully belonging to the American people.

All of which brings us back to the "Election hacking" story. The intelligence agencies have now offered up their (ahem) official report on this alleged election-changing, super-sophisticated act of cyber terror, and have found that (cue the shower-stabbing music from "Psycho") Vladimir Putin personally ordered a monumental campaign to undermine our election and put his personal buddy, Donald Trump, into office!

But there's one little problem. While the declassified report is happy to draw this apocalyptic conclusion, it offers virtually no proof. We're asked to accept this poppycock on sheer trust, which would be a lot easier if the Obama administration and intelligence agencies had even an iota of credibility anymore.

But let's look at a couple of important things the report says that we can agree with: there was no hacking or interference with any voting or vote-tallying machines, and the intelligence agencies do not assert that the alleged Russian campaign had any influence on voters or the election. Wow.

It is also noteworthy that the intelligence agencies were able to draw such detailed conclusions considering the DNC failed to cooperate with the investigation, and wouldn't grant the FBI access to their computers. And interestingly, the report fails to note that the sensitive emails eventually released by Wikileaks (again, without direct evidence of Russian involvement) weren't even obtained by "hacking," but rather by a simple "phishing" email sent to John Podesta, in which he revealed that his password (and the key to all of the DNC's documents) was..."password."

The report also states that Putin's evil plan to overthrow our election involved schemes like having Russian newscasts criticize Hillary Clinton more than Donald Trump. Which apparently made a huge impact on the many voters whose primary source of information was Russian newscasts.

We could go on and on (and already have!) but our point is this: thanks to the Obama administration our intelligence agencies no longer have a whit of credibility, nor does their preposterously politicized "Russian hacking" report.

Considering 8 years of wall-to-wall failures, it's not surprising that Americans have decided to turn their backs on alleged "Intelligence" in favor of Donald Trump's promise of common sense.


          2016 - The Year in Rebuke (Part Two)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

JULY

With the political world holding its breath in anticipation, Hope n' Change finally endorses a Presidential candidate...


While lacking the enthusiasm evinced by many Trump supporters, Hope n' Change opines that "Donald Trump is potentially a yuuuuge disrupter at a time when our political system needs huge disruption. Our nation would be far more likely to survive his possible policy failures than even a single term of Hillary Clinton's toxic policy successes."

This belief is immediately confirmed when yet another federal agency is revealed to have been corrupted by proximity to the Clinton Machine...


After laundry-listing the many, many ways that Hillary had lied, evaded, and thoroughly compromised national security with her secret email server, FBI Director James Comey decides that no charges should be pressed because:

A) He is apparently a complete political whore
B) His family was being held at gunpoint
C) He believes that women (bless their hearts) are just too darn stupid to understand computers, national security, and laws
D) Hillary made a pact with Satan which involves fellating lepers in Hell for all eternity
E) All of the above. Which, frankly, we're pretty sure is the right answer.

Energized by this undeserved "Get Out of Jail Free" card, Hillary immediately seizes on new ways to make voters hate her...


Following a black sniper's assassination of five Dallas police officers who were providing security for a "Black Lives Matter" protest, Hillary bravely declares that the actual problem is that white people need to do a better job of listening and, bizarrely, that Wall Street needs greater transparency. Based on her strong statement, an increasing number of voters begin to suspect she's using narcotics.

Meanwhile,  GOP heads explode when Senator Ted Cruz appears at the Republican National Convention and speaks passionately about the need to defend freedom and the Constitution, but fails to endorse Trump by name for reasons no one can explain...


But July isn't done with us yet. Following a series of scandals revealing sabotage against the Bernie Sanders campaign, the DNC meets to celebrate democracy by anointing a candidate selected by unelected "superdelegates"...


AUGUST

With the wind at her back, which is helpful in keeping her upright, Hillary starts fleshing out what revolutionary policies she hopes to bring to the presidency other than the ability to pee while sitting down...

But concerns grow about the candidate's health as she is increasingly seen struggling with simple tasks like speaking without coughing up a lung, getting both eyes to point in the same direction, or telling the truth...


But undaunted and pumped full of amphetamines and opioids,  Hillary throws herself into intense preparation for the upcoming Presidential debates...


And speaking of sex escapades (which is pretty much synonymous with speaking about the Clintons) another one rears its...uh...head when Anthony Weiner, the oft-disgraced husband of Hillary's right hand woman Huma Abedin, is discovered to be emailing bonergrams to an under-aged girl...


Saying "enough is enough," Huma gives up on Weiner (not that there's anything wrong with that) and prepares to face new challenges in...

SEPTEMBER

When asked to answer yet more questions about her totally illegal scheme to evade the Freedom of Information Act and, as an unexpected bonus, give away all of our nation's secrets, Hillary is struck - apparently forcefully - with a brilliant idea...


Yes, the woman who wants to be President of the United States claims to have such substantial brain damage that she can't remember anything which happened while she was engaged in criminal activity.  Which is to say her entire adult life.

Shortly thereafter, Clinton speaks to an adoring throng of hired enthusiasts at an LGBT fundraiser and makes a statement which convinces even hardened skeptics that she has gangrenous grey matter...


"To be grossly generalistic," she grossly cackled, "you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic— you name it!"

Surprisingly, at least to Democrats, it turns out that many Americans don't appreciate being mocked, disparaged, and slandered by corrupt elites. Which is why it's (ahem) fortunate for Clinton that the public is soon distracted by a terrorist bomb blast...


29 people are hurt (and thankfully none killed) when a bomb is detonated in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York. Chelsea Clinton swears "it's just a coincidence" and "I'm working on an alibi."

Hoping to get her media narrative back on track, Hillary Clinton puts avuncular socialist Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail to say that he no longer despises everything Hillary stands for, and that he's come to the life-changing (and possibly life-saving) realization that she is the most honest, refreshing, and ethical politician ever born...


In fairness to Bernie, maybe he was just trying on his "shameless whore" costume to make ready for...

OCTOBER

Suddenly, the campaign is rocked by a series of well-coordinated (if loosely fact-checked) attacks on Donald Trump's finances...


The NY Times goes "front page crazy" with a story screaming that over the past few years, Donald Trump may have paid all the federal income tax he legally owed - which possibly, and only possibly, equaled "none." Not only is "Man Pays Correct Amount of Taxes" not a scandal, it's not even interesting.

What is interesting is that the story was written based on illegally obtained information which was leaked to the public. Democratic spokespeople offer high praise for the publication of illegally leaked documents, then report a weird feeling "like a crow just stepped on my grave."


In a shocking revelation that even offends serial rapist Bill Clinton, an old audiotape reveals that Donald Trump once used the word "pussy" in a conversation which did not involve cats. Even worse, a (very small) parade of women come forward, dabbing tears, to share tortured memories of being "kissed without permission" by Donald Trump, who used only Tic Tacs for breath control.

Unfortunately for Hillary, none of this is as interesting as Wikileaks' release of thousands of documents detailing the corruption of the Clinton Foundation, Hillary's "pay for play" use of the State Department to solicit bribes, and the overall sleaziness of everyone in the Democratic party.

Suddenly finding illegally obtained information which was leaked to the public abhorrent, the media and the White House blame Russian hackers because it sounds better than "our own idiocy." Joe Biden warns of draconian counter measures...


In the midst of all this, early voting begins, with record numbers of voters flooding to the polls to decide which of the two least popular candidates in American history will win...


But wait! With Halloween in the air, James Comey doesn't need to dress up as a ghost to scare the sheet out of Hillary - he simply reopens her "thing that wouldn't die" email espionage case only days before the election.

Hilariously, it turns out that in the course of investigating Anthony Weiner's underage sexting activities, the FBI has discovered thousands of Hillary's State Department emails on his personal laptop...as well as on his laptop computer.


And so the stage is set for...

NOVEMBER

Following a hostage video in which James Comey, bruised and bound, says that nothing suspicious other than Top Secret documents was found on Weiner's "spank bank" computer, Election Day arrives at last.

Left-leaning media political pundits sport Cheshire Cat grins, and Hillary Clinton's team pops champagne corks as the poll results start to come in.

Soon after which the grins fade, the champagne goes flat, and (according to trustworthy sources on the Left) Armageddon arrives...


Trump wins to the shock and disbelieving horror of liberals everywhere...


Apparently unaware of how the American voting system works, those on the Left are further devastated by the realization that while Hillary won the popular vote, it's only the critical electoral college vote that decides the Presidency...


While many anti-Americans take the news of Trump's victory badly,  perhaps the most convincing display of grief comes from Fidel Castro who actually goes to the trouble of dropping dead...


Which at long last brings us to...

DECEMBER

In the weeks following the election, it becomes clear that American voters were sick of being denigrated, disrespected, and lied to by their own government. Tired of seeing their health insurance costs skyrocket while their benefits plummeted. And unwilling to accept a stagnant economy which seemingly offered jobs only to hedge fund managers and fry cooks.

Granted, not everyone saw the election results in the same way...


When his analysis is roundly laughed at, Barack Obama goes back to his default position of claiming that the election was somehow "hacked" by evil Russians who, inexplicably, liked the idea of Donald Trump having a nuclear arsenal.

The soon-to-be ex-president declares the alleged hacking to be a grave and immediate existential threat to our nation, then takes swift action by boarding Air Force One for another extended, multi-million dollar vacation in Hawaii...


Back on the mainland, the electoral college finally meets to officially cast their votes. And once again, a dazed and broken Hillary has to settle for second place...


With only days left in the year, Americans finally breathe a sigh of relief - confident that they can enjoy the holidays without any vacationing presidents suddenly launching a vicious sneak attack on one of our closest allies. They are, of course, wrong...


With assistance (and likely direction) from the Obama administration, the U.N. passes a resolution condemning Israel, eroding that nation's legitimacy and chances for eventual peace.  It is a transparently petty and vindictive act from a petty and vindictive president bent on burning the world down if he can't be in charge.

In the final days of his wretched administration, he also admits floods of refugees and illegals into the country, grants early release to a record number of felons, and puts thousands of new regulations in place to hamper the American economy under Donald Trump.

Which is why the stroke of midnight on December 31st has never been sweeter...


Happy New Year from Stilton Jarlsberg and Hope n' Change Cartoons...which, after 8 long years, finally has actual hope for change.

After repeatedly having his ass handed to him by Vladimir Putin for the past 8 years, Barack Obama decided yesterday that it was "now or never" to finally take strong action against Russia... whether Russia had done anything wrong or not.

Which is why, in reaction to the so-called "election hacking," Obama ordered 35 Russian diplomats (described by the White House as "intelligence agents") out of the country, closed a couple of domestic Russian facilities (described by the White House as "intelligence agencies"), and promised to unleash a cyber counterattack (described by the computer literate as "fat chance").

Unfortunately, despite requests from the Senate and House Intelligence Committees, Barry has failed to produce any compelling evidence that Russia was behind the Wikileaks document releases which revealed to American voters that the Democratic party, from Hillary on down, is populated by sleazy, bribe-mongering crooks, lunatics, and sex addicts. In fact, it's highly questionable whether any final intelligence analysis will even hit Obama's desk before he leaves office - making the timing of his saber-rattling highly suspect if not downright dangerous.

Mind you, Hope n' Change isn't suggesting that Russia didn't hack into the email servers of Hillary, Leon Panetta, and the DNC. Of course they did; the cyber-porch lights were left on, the cyber-front door was wide open, and there was a big cyber-sign on the porch saying "please don't steal anything while we're not home."

The secret keepers were, in the laughable words of James Comey, "extremely careless." Meaning neither Russia nor anyone else had to be extremely clever to steal documents.

But all of that being said, no evidence has been presented that it was Russia who gave damning but 100% truthful documents to Wikileaks. It could have been a mischievous high school kid or, our personal belief, a Democratic insider who wanted to save our nation from Hillary.

Which is why it's disconcerting that Obama, while still vacationing in Hawaii, has prematurely chosen retaliatory action against the only suspect who has a huge nuclear arsenal and pretty much no sense of humor.

Perhaps, before the big ball drops in Times Square on New Year's Eve, he just wants everyone (especially Historians) to think that after 8 simpering years in office his own balls have finally dropped.

AND ONE MORE THING...



Drink up, drive safely, and join us Monday for "2016 - the year in review!"

The 2020 Commission Report on the North Korean Nuclear Attacks Against the United States: A Speculative Novel. By Jeffrey Lewis.Mariner Books; 304 pages; $15.99. WH Allen; £9.99.

OPEN-SOURCE intelligence is the art of learning things by procuring and analysing unclassified (if not always very accessible) evidence. Jeffrey Lewis, an expert on arms control and disarmament at the Middlebury Institute in Monterey, California, is a keen exponent of this craft. In “The 2020 Commission Report” he applies it to the near future.

The fiction is framed as an American government report, published in 2023, into the loss of 3m lives—1.4m of them Americans—to North Korean nuclear weapons in March 2020. Like the reports of the Roberts Commission on Pearl Harbour and the 9/11 Commission, it finds that the disaster could have been avoided, but that the evidence of the escalating threat was missed—because the people in charge were misreading the world they...


          Comment on Are You Entitled To Your Opinion? by Jennifer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In my experience as a Midwestern Millenial, this is a knee-jerk reaction based mostly on the fear of being perceived as stupid. People don't want their opinions (we could also call them "beliefs") challenged, because it makes them feel talked down to. As if they're less intelligent merely because they're less informed. That feeling contributes so much to confirmation bias--the desire to seek out sources that shore up our own arguments. "See? This doctor agrees with me! I'm not an idiot!" The solution to this is as much about recognizing our own insecurity as it is about facts. We aren't stupid just because we don't know everything. Who does? Who could? No one expects you to have all the answers, or to rattle off all the names and numbers. That's okay. What's not okay is refusing to learn. Refusing to be taught anything new out of prejudice, fear, or hurt pride. You aren't an expert in every field. I'm not, you're not, no one is. We must trust those who've devoted their time and attention to really understanding a topic. We must "take their word for it." Who else's word is worth taking? You wouldn't go to a nuclear physicist to learn Christian theology, and you shouldn't go to a Priest to learn about atomic nuclei. There's no shame in admitting what we do not know.

We had a thunderstorm in Manhattan last night. It woke me up and I was in a foul mood, as I sometimes am when I wake up in the middle of the night. The lightning and thunder scared me. First time that ever happened. My mind started playing games. I imagined the flash of lightning was a nuclear weapon detonating, and the thunder was the wave of destruction. It's a good approximation of the time it would take between the flash and death. Great move, I said to my mind. Now I'm even more scared and sad. Eventually I fell back asleep, but it wasn't a good sleep.

Si tuviera que titular mi opinión, propondría «gran idea, peor ejecución».

Yo también creo que en algún momento vislumbraste la idea de la luna cortejando a una estrella y quisiste montar tu relato en torno a ello. Ésa es una fórmula muy productiva, porque no requiere de una gran trama, sino de dos o tres pequeños elementos que se ponen en un orden determinado y sólo hay que construir el camino que los enlaza.

El problema reside en que tenemos que calibrar cuánto de protagonismo hemos de dar a ese elemento nuclear. A veces recrearnos en exceso da lugar a un relato aburrido, y a veces dedicarle sólo el punto del éxtasis (nunca mejor dicho en este relato) hace que la idea principal pierda fuerza y todo el relato dependa de la trama que, ahora sí, necesita estar bien montada si no queremos acabar con un texto hecho jirones, lleno de incoherencias y que deja al lector desconcertado.

¡Tranquilo/a/e/u! A mí el relato me ha gustado mucho, de verdad. Lo que echo de menos es más protagonismo de ese momento espeluznante, o del propio miedo de la protagonista, y me sobran algunos pequeños detalles, como la mención a los autores. (INCISO: hablo de cómo habría enfrentado yo la escritura de la historia, teniendo en cuenta mi enfoque personal y mi ―cortísima― experiencia como autor. Si a ti la mención a los autores te parece que encaja entonces ignora esta opinión mía.)

En el apartado formal me han sobrado comas y me han faltado puntos. También veo alguna tilde bailona y alguna frase que genera confusión, como ésta:

Cuando se lee por primera vez parece que lo que le han dejado los suegros son los insectos. Con una reordenación de la frase se arregla, no pierde sentido y posiblemente gana fuerza narrativa.

As usual, lo de las tildes y demás siempre lo comento y a continuación le quito hierro recalcando que en una revisión calmada se puede corregir sin problemas, así que eso no afecta en la puntuación final.

He de decir que manejas muy bien el recurso del suspense. Hasta el último momento estaba confundido respecto de qué era lo que iba a ocurrir, así que has conseguido generar el efecto sorpresa. El cierre final también me parece bien armado.

Hay muchas probabilidades de que te lleves algún punto por mi parte.

翁長知事は、堂々たる保守政治家であった。保守政治家とは、沖縄を守るということだった。初めてお会いしたときは、沖縄自民党幹事長であった。その時から変わらない。保守・革新を超え、沖縄のために辺野古新基地建設反対で全くぶれなかった。遺志を多くの人と受け継ぎ、必ず勝利を勝ち取ります。

首相は津川雅彦の追悼に4ツイートも費やして,たどたどしい言葉ながらも,精一杯の悲しみを表明している.津久井やまゆり園で,大勢の人たちが殺され,犯人の男から首相にメッセージが発せられた時にも,このような言葉が一言でもあってほしかったと,今でも強く思う.
